QUEER​.​ARCHIVE​.​WORK 2 (1923 INTERNET ARCHIVE EDITION) (2019)




QUEER​.​ARCHIVE​.​WORK 2 (1923 INTERNET ARCHIVE EDITION) (2019)
Loose folio of risograph prints and print-on-demand zine
13 in. x 19 in. folded/assembled
Edition of 100

QUEER.ARCHIVE.WORK 2 (1923 INTERNET ARCHIVE EDITION) was installed in a special reading room at the Internet Archive in San Francisco on January 25, 2019. Printed as an edition of 100, the publication is a newsprint catalogue enclosing a set of annotated risograph prints, allowing lesser-known material from 1923 to intermingle in a loose assemblage. Artifacts include rare, historical LGBTQ content that has been digitized for the first time, and works by African American and Native American artists and writers. All items were originally published in 1923 and are in the public domain as of January 1, 2019. QUEER.ARCHIVE.WORK 2 was edited and produced by Paul Soulellis while artist-in-residence at the Internet Archive (January 7–25, 2019), and was part of the Archive’s celebration of the newly-expanded public domain.
