Dear Kitchen Sisters,
Perhaps of interest for your excellent series is the story of PAD/D or Political Art Documentation/Distribution whose archives now rest in the Museum of Modern Art? Two people organized this resource about politically engaged art: Barbara Moore and Mimi Smith and its background story is creating an activist archive to inspire artists to create work for the social good starting in 1980 when most artists were focused on abstract painting and sculpture. Here is a news piece about the group and the archive.
