About the Slide Archive Library
The Journal of Aesthetics and Protest‘s Slide Archive Library is an open collection that accepts and shares work of artists, writers and activists, who relate to the concept of Aesthetics and Protest. The Library offers itself as an open public repository for creative and political work. Along with the many individuals and collectives who continue to donate items to the Archive, we would like to acknowledge Jill Newman, and Katie Robinson for their generous work in bringing this project to light.
