Playtesting: Counter-Archives

‘Justice is an ongoing methodology’ - Ruha Benjamin.  

What can digital assets and datasets do for Black liberation and social justice? From broken mechanics to Black Trans gospel, magic circles to terms and conditions of engagement, we join Berlin-based artist Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley ( and New York based artist LaJune McMillan (The Black Movement Library) to find out how these artists are building counter-archives towards liberation through alternative practices of digital archiving and creation. 

Playtesting is presented by Tamar Clarke-Brown, Serpentine Arts Technologies and produced in collaboration with Sasha Eyde-Lindner from Reduced Listening.

Additional sound design by Alx Suutoo Dabo.
