The 'raw concrete' of the Web, unconventional, hard-coded, creative? In a few words, these are some of my keywords I have in mind when mentioning 'Brutalism'.
Lina Forsgren shared a stylish web design project for Black Archives Sweden, a contemporary archive centered around the experiences and narratives of Afro-Swedes and black people in Sweden, run by Jonelle Twum, Ulrika Flink and Anthia Nibitegeka.
“Many official archives today are spaces with minimal to no representation of Afro-Swedes* and Black people in Sweden. These are also spaces that reproduce and consolidate swedishness as whiteness and Blackness as the Other. The narratives that our official archives hold, open up questions about what stories constitute the nation. Who is worthy of remembrance? What stories are worthy of documentation and preservation, and on what premises?”
