BUFU is By Us For Us
A project-based collective interested in building solidarity amongst Us, co-creating with You experimental models of organizing & making, generating prestige, and mining time as a resource.
The 5 co-founders of this project (Jazmin Jones, Jiun Kwon, Tsige Tafesse, Katherine Tom, and Suhyun Choi) started BUFU in September 2015. Since then, we’ve expanded our work through collaborating with multiple partner organizations, collectives, and individuals. We wish to to highlight the lived experiences of those who have been impacted politically and socially by white supremacy, while de-centering whiteness and resurfacing our deeply interconnected and complicated histories. This evolving archive lives online, on a screen, in an exhibition, in a journal, with endless possibilities for growth.
