Scope and content
The following text quoted from Alexandra Bischoff's digital records transfer form dated August 20, 2018:
This audio record was created on January 10, 2018 at the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery - the day preceding the opening of the exhibition "Beginning with the Seventies: GLUT" (January 12 - April 8, 2018). For this exhibition, artist Alexandra Bischoff restaged the Vancouver Women's Bookstore as "Rereading Room," an interactive installation which includes a selection of the Bookstore's inaugural inventory. With the support of the Belkin Art Gallery, Bischoff held a reunion celebration with nine of the Bookstore's volunteers; this recording is from the reunion event.
Interviewed participants include volunteers that were involved in the organization throughout three decades of its existence, and represent a range of feminist concerns and perspectives. Many, in fact, met for the first time on this occasion. The opinions expressed within the interview are the participants own and do not necessarily reflect the policy of each individual involved, the Vancouver Women's Bookstore at large, or the Belkin Art Gallery.
Moderating the discussion with Bischoff is Vincent Tao, Librarian of Vancouver artist run centre 221A and Bischoff's collaborator and adviser for Rereading Room's first installation in 2016-17.
