Between 1985 and 1990, London based artist Marysia Lewandowska recorded over 200 hours of audio with artists and academics, ranging from private conversations to public events. The Women’s Audio Archive began life as a fictional institute, invented as a way of approaching key female figures in the arts, becoming a valuable reflection of their politics and ethics.

Revisiting the interview as a methodology, for this event Lewandowska is in conversation with artist Rosalie Schweiker concerned with feminist art practices across generations, including an introduction to the project and the Q&A: Artists in Conversation exhibition by its curator Nayia Yiakoumaki.

This event coincides with the archive display Q&A: Artists in Conversation, which explores the many formats of artist interviews and how they have evolved over time.
