ANARCHIVE FREEING UP THE HOBGOB: A new safe house in London

October 3, 2013


A very important new project, ‘in honour of the lost commons of popular memory’, is now open in London. The MayDay Rooms – dedicated to the retrieval and reanimation of ‘histories from below’ – is located at 88 Fleet Street:

  • MayDay Rooms is a safe house for vulnerable archives and historical material linked to social movements, experimental culture, and marginalised figures and groups. A site for gathering, holding, and animating documents and idioms of dissent which continue to offer a critically productive and emancipatory relation to the turbulent present. It is geographically located in Central London, but linked in collaboration, inspiration and practice with an international gathering of common and concurrent initiatives.

    The manifesto can be found here: http://maydayrooms.org/about/manifesto/
