About the Archive

For over fifteen years, our archive has been a major online resource for individuals, universities, museums, and libraries worldwide.

Featuring over 1000 hours of audio recordings and numerous publications, it serves as an accessible educational platform for all. Join us in exploring and sharing these free resources with others.


Programs

We work with artists, communities, and institutions worldwide to develop and archive programs about cultural and socio-political issues. These programs seek an active relation to history and memory, and enable us to continually rewrite and reimagine this organization and its place in society.



Publications

We work with artists, communities, and institutions worldwide to develop publications about cultural and socio-political issues. Designed and edited at Slought, these unique publications express our commitment to the circulation of ideas.
