Abstract:

The Testing the Limits records consist of both organizational records and video footage shot by the collective documenting all aspects of the struggle for health care and civil rights that faced people with AIDS.

Of the over three thousand videos in the collection, 127 videos are currently available for viewing. These videos consist of camera originals documenting AIDS activism, chiefly demonstrations by ACT UP New York. Some of the footage available in the collection was edited into the collective's Testing the Limits: NYC and Voices from the Front productions. The collection includes new transfers of the broadcast masters of both of these works. There are no videos currently available from the collective's four-part series The Question of Equality. However, transcriptions of many of the interviews done for the series are available.
