Y2K Revisited from a Black British Lens.

Childhood.Memories.00s is a collection of video complications, archival objects and interviews that recalls the joys and excitement of the Y2K era — held in a recreated tween bedroom. Not only were visitors transported back in time, this exhibition redefined what is considered an archive and widened the conversation around how the past can be preserved and engaged with.
