Abstract or Description

Who makes and hold the archive? What is not archived, forgotten or overlooked?
 How does the archive inform action?

Organiser of Archive: In the Making, a day of discussions and workshops focusing on artists’ use of archive and memory as material, and mode of production. It brought together a group of artists, curators and thinkers whose work explores the possibilities of these materials to create artworks, generate discourse, invite engagement and disturb dominant narratives about the past.
