The Archival Impulse: Accessing Documents in the Museum and the Politics of Knowledge
The collection of archives has become a trend during the last few years; museums purchase and exhibit them with the promise that documents will be completely accessible. This session will explore how censorship and dictatorship have threatened the formation and conservation of archives, as well as the archive’s role in the promotion of critical thinking. This new ‘archival moment’ bears witness to a situation that is both worrying and stimulating.
