Welcome to Dark Matter Archives

This is a site about the politics of visibility. It is dedicated to those who resist visibility, as well as to those who are refused visibility by mainstream culture. The evolving mission of this site is to provide knowledge, documents, and tools about the history and current practices of culture’s “missing mass.” Its goal is to reinforce whatever degree of autonomy marginalized artists, informal artists, and art collectives have wrested from the mainstream institutions of culture.
