About industria

Industria (formally GIRLFORUM*) is an artist-run network, seeking to re-politicise the ‘art world’ through working groups that scrutinise institutions and infrastructures in order to imagine and build towards new social universes.

Over the last couple of years, we have carried out a flexible and ever-changing programme of work, including a series of 6 publications distributed for free as PDFs to our mailing list, and (most recently) working behind the scenes as part of a small group to directly challenge the ethics of a major art institution.

This challenge is an ongoing and painstaking process and our activity is largely unfunded apart from the generous donations here, which mean we can cover our basic running costs and occasionally commission contributors to add their voices to the project. Our current goal is to work towards a half day's wage for each of us per week. This amounts to £480/ month. On average, we do industria work 2 days a week amongst our paid work and own artistic practices.

We massively appreciate any donations you're able to give.

Many thanks,
industria xx
