In Search of Archives
Contemporary Approaches to the Past


23-26.01.2019

The conference and exhibition “En quête d’archives / In Search of Archives” inquires into contemporary notions and practices of the archive in postcolonial constellations. While the state of archives in former colonial settings is continuously marked by limited access, dispersed documents and repressed histories, contemporary art and research have been opening various ways of appropriating, (re)collecting and rendering visible the diverse traces and memories, creating new meanings of the past for the present and the future.
