'In this formulation, the ‘counter-archive’ represents an incomplete and unstable repository, an entity to be contested and expanded through clandestine acts, a space of impermanence and play. Taken as an action, the term entails mischief and imagination, challenging the record of official history. Employed as an artistic strategy it pushes our archival impulse into new territories, encouraging critique and material alteration/fabrication, and emboldening anarchivism. To counter-archive is to counter-act, to rewrite, to animate over'. 1Brett Kashmere, 'Cache Rules Everything Around Me', in Counter-Archive, Incite 2 (Spring–Fall 2010), https://incite-online.net/intro2.html.
