Unconscious Archives presents artists at the forefront of experimentation exploring materiality and embodied liveness across sound art and electronic music, experimental media and audiovisual art. Directed by artist and producer Sally Golding, Unconscious Archives Festival 2017 featured over 40 musicians, artists and writers and was described as “a platform for women defying genres and breaking boundaries, raising the bar of opportunity for female-identifying and transgender artists internationally” (Resident Advisor), and as “a titanic program for an extraordinary festival” (Makery).
