Wearable Documents: Tees from the Barnard Archives
Wearable Documents explores graphic T-shirts found in the Barnard Archives, analyzing the documentary significance of T-shirts as feminist texts. Drawing from the collections of zinesters Keight Bergmann, Lauren Jade Martin, and Sara Jaffe, activist and photographer Freda Leinwand, alum and writer Rona Wilk, and the Barnard Center for Research on Women, these T-shirts serve as mnemonic devices reflective of generations of feminist histories.
