AMNESIARCHIVE. Save To Forget – Amnesias of Archives

Interdiciplinary Workshop Summit

What can we learn from this – especially regarding the general problems we're facing with everything not capable to be documented and kept in analog and/or digital storage media?

What about images and pictures, the pictures of images and pictures, kept in fragile storage systems – and always at risk to get lost? What will remain from those left aside? What about the images kept from us with purpose – whilst their absence is being dismissed and forgotten behind what is on display? What about those images we'd wish to forget – but that will nevertheless remain?

What does all this mean for our cultural memory – what does it mean for the (hi)stories we're telling about the past, we're writing in and for the future?

This year’s interfiction summit for art, media and network cultures invites with lectures, presentations and workshop-sessions to take a closer look at Amnesias of Archives. Artists and tinkerers, video- and film makers, researchers, curators, writers, (h)activists and archivists interested in interdisciplinary exchange are invited to join the conference and to discuss their ideas and projects. Moreover, the interfiction DIY-Lab will offer opportunities to test, to share and to develop how-tos and know-how in practice as well.

Join us from Nov 16 to 18, 2012 at the interfiction workshop-summit in Kassel – AMNESIARCHIVE. Save To Forget – Amnesias of Archives in the framework of the 29th Kassel Documentary and Video festival.

More info and application: See the announcement at the institute (further information will also be provided in the related course, "BILDERBERGE").
