Hvid[mə] Archive is a multidisciplinary collection of texts and works, unfolding critical perspectives through a conceptualization of the old Danish noun hvidme. We want to deconstruct and problematize whiteness. In this sense, the archive is partly a linguistic manoeuvre to represent a vocabulary for discussion, and partly a room where critical perspectives on whiteness can be shared. Hvid[mə] Archive is a polyphonic and tentative action that seeks to expose the white colour’s violence, the institutional power at play and the selective colonial memory.
The archive features excerpts of artworks and texts in the fields of: art / culture / critical studies / intersectionality / racialization / mythology / colonial history / decolonialism / philosophy / fiction / queer theory / feminism.
