Interleaving the archive (Group Action with KK) is a performative lecture by Holly Argent bringing together a spoken narrative, photographic transparencies on an overhead projector, live video-feed projection and a screening of films by Polish artistic duo KwieKulik, active in Warsaw between 1971–1987.

It brings together a spoken narrative, photographic transparencies on an overhead projector, live video-feed projection and a screening of films by Polish artistic duo KwieKulik, active in Warsaw between 1971–1987. The cinema is used as a pedagogical space to share a new narrative around the works of KwieKulik, incorporating research trips to Warsaw, historical moments of resistance, and reflections on the term ‘art worker’ in contemporary economies.
