Club | Patterns

Sometimes we put on club nights. But we want to think beyond genre so we're also considering patterns in this theme. Things that repeat and define surfaces, but also scenes that sustain themselves over time. Documentaion that speaks to the theme of Club and Patterns: First up the sets and performances from the Episode 6: Make a Way Out of No Way Club night. Then learn more about the history, politics and creative practices of the House|Ballroom scene in this discussion led by the Vogue'ology collective. Later on we'll be adding work from the field of electronic music that took place at INSTAL, MLFC and KYTN.

It might be helpful to note that these paired ‘terms’ or 'themes' are not synonyms nor are they binary oppositions but words that combine to (hopefully) produce un-rational anti-categories. The aim is to allow (encourage) the archive to be read in ways counter to normative or reductive categories. To allow things in the archive to appear in sometimes unlikely groupings and to resist essentialism. And to encourge exploration into all the archive documentation.
