Born from an urgency to produce artist-led dialogue on how strategies of performativity and embodiment complicate and inform current conditions of living and making, The Invisible Archive is a new research journal of performance art with a focus on the intersection of performance, text and place. Each edition uses the in-depth interview to critically reflect on the practice of one artist. We invite writers, artists, and inquisitors of culture to expand the discourse of performance art and to manifest new relationships between rigorous writing, research, with the radical nature of the time itself. The first volume archives performance artists in Los Angeles.
The first three issues of our first volume archive the work and lives of Cindy Rehm (Issue #1), Heisue Chung-Matheu & Grace Hwang (Issue #2), and Kim Zumpfe (Issue #3).
