In addition to these original materials, there are numerous documents from more recent years. Rosler has continued to assemble newspaper clippings on homelessness and housing, tenant organization newsletters, and catalogues for exhibitions relating to the subject in the 20 years since the exhibition at Dia. A variety of educational materials from contemporary tenants’ rights, housing, and homeless advocacy groups are available to the public as part of the exhibition.

Collected during the show’s duration were supplementary materials from Dan Wiley, the young artist and student of urbanism that Rosler collaborated with when structuring her project in 1988 and 1989. His notes and plans for the project, contact lists, press clippings, essays relating to urban planning, and books on gentrification and housing also provide a glimpse into the processes of construction and organizational armature of “If You Lived Here …”

This presentation at e-flux project space was the catalyst for cataloguing the nearly 1500 documents that constitute the archive and was the occasion for commissioning a new essay on “If You Lived Here…” by art historian Nina Möntmann, published in the October issue of e-flux journal.

Special thanks to Heather O’Brien and Egan Frantz for helping catalogue and present these documents.
