The Affect Archive seeks to document moments that persist in an embodied fashion, even long after revolts and protests have subsided. Are there affective experiences that escape popular representations and narrative histories of resistance, and which do not fit into the sometimes narrow parameters of what has been called the “Attention Economy”? Is it possible that these harder-to-encapsulate affects might be important points of relation in the sustaining of resistance? What sorts of gestural vocabularies and charged silences come out when we attempt to recall them with our whole bodies?
