History Lessons: Fluid Records is a live programme curated by Annie Jael Kwan in association with Something Human and Iniva, followed by Q&A. Featuring performances by Libita Clayton and Larry Achiampong which take their cue from the idea that the archive can be fluid and transposed into living people, who bear witness thereby willfully reconstructing and passing on meaning in the historical present.
