Archival Frequencies: Arkivet för Rosa Brus
Is there space for noise in our archives? Are there queer wavelengths? What acoustic feedback do we hear in our present times? Can we queer the archive? These are some of the questions discussed by Birt Berglund and Johan Sundell from Arkivet för Rosa Brus with host Samuel Girma. The questions led us deeply into the relationship between noise and queerness. In part 1 of Black Archives Sweden’s podcast series, we discuss sound and noise in our archives and contemporary times.
The following sound bites are used in the episode:
Sound bite 1 (intro): Identity Crisis – Arash Arfazadeh
Sound bite 2: Brev från framtiden- Queers Against Fascism
Sound bite 3: Frigörelsedemonstration, Stockholm, 1984
All the sound bites heard in this episode are part of Arkivet för Rosa Brus.
