The nature of colonial archives is governed by the accumulation of objects and their stories, so how may we read the material and narratives that have been excluded from these archives?

This discussion examines the failure of colonial archivists to fully document and acknowledge the extent of colonial violence, and how the omission of certain information from archives can also be read as a form of violence.

Powerhouse design resident Joel Sherwood Spring, Garigal researcher Lauren Booker andPowerhouse head of collections, First Nations, Nathan ‘Mudyi’ Sentance discuss the limitations of colonial archives and highlight not only the boundaries but also what lies beyond them.
