Taking Care of Things! (Jan 15-18)

25 February 2014 - 10:59am -- oliver
January 15-18
Taking Care of Things! 
Archives - Life-Cycles - Care
organized by Post-Media Lab/CDC and Brown University/Habits of Living in cooperation with the Stadtarchiv Lüneburg
 
Venue: Stadtarchiv Lüneburg, Germany
 
From the perspective of current theoretical approaches the figure of the archive seems to have lost its central status and its fever. Meanwhile, in our medial and cultural set-up new (kinds of) archives seem to crop up everywhere, accelerated by new means of production and distribution. Cultural repertoires are being remixed alongside technological repositories – often giving new life to almost forgotten relics. Ever more things, valuables, processes, projects, constituencies, even movements, need to be taken care of.

Series of discussions: An Archive/Live Archive/UnArchive and Public Library workshop

20 February 2014 - 1:07pm -- oliver

There are so many initiatives recently dealing with archiving of different artistic, cultural and historical materials, which are induced by the possibilities of digitization as a new round of 'actualization' and new spaces for dissemination of the material dealt with. The dominant framework of those initiatives is still institutional – by that, public/state institutions are employing contemporary tools in order to remain in their great narratives of 'history', 'heritage' and '(national) culture', to remain in control.
