Imperfect Archiving, Archiving as Practice: For a Love of Softness is printed as an extension of the GenderFail Archive Project reading room at Center for Book Arts. The exhibition features over 1,000 art books housed in an open library–inviting visitors to engage with text intimately. This essay details GenderFail’s ethos around publishing, archiving, and disseminating with care. It explains how softness of text and touch are vital tools for creating a radical archive.
