Disappeared artworks, effaced histories, abandoned futures: No Document is an exploration of loss in many forms. It is an elegy for a friendship and artistic partnership cut short by death, an attempt to make a dear friend emerge from a field of memory that also encompasses histories of protest and revolution, art-making, and cinema, border policing and the abattoir. No Document shows how love, kinship, and resistance echo through time.
Anwen Crawford is an Australian writer, best known for her writing as a critic, and here she also draws on her background in poetry, visual art and zine-making in a formally daring work of composition and collage. At once intimate and expansive, No Document reimagines the boundaries that divide us—as people, nations, and species—and asks how we can create forms of solidarity that endure.
