This project does not deal with the objects of the past: it anticipates future, ideologically obsolete material that will no longer exist after the end of patriarchy, or however we might name the current regime. Items from everyday experience are named as evidence of the current, late-capitalist oppression of women, from legal documents to consumer goods. These objects are identified, stamped, and placed back in circulation. 

This work is presented through a workshop / demonstration format and audience members are encouraged to participate by bringing material they want to stamp. The project also exists on twitter as @pparchive and welcomes online contributions – virtual stamps include #burninflames, #pparchive, and #misogynisttimemachine.
