Piss on pity: How a new archive captures the radical spirit of the Disability Arts Movement (The Independent)

The Independent: Piss on pity: How a new archive captures the radical spirit of the Disability Arts Movement. “Although a highly successful protest group, the Disability Arts Movement is also inspiring because it brought together a wealth of people from Britain’s creative communities – from comedians and film directors to sculptors and artists. Set up to raise awareness, provoke social discussion and dispel the myth that disabled people want or need to be pitied, it was quite simply ahead of its time. And with the launch of the million-pound archive later this year – and its digital arm this month – this radical protest movement is now taking its place in the spotlight.”
