Curating Archives

Será debatido o arquivo como recurso relevante para práticas artísticas e de curadoria. Analisaremos algumas das razões pelas quais os arquivos se transformaram numa plataforma importante para a produção criativa recorrendo a exemplos de práticas artísticas e de curadoria que abordam o arquivo. Concluiremos o seminário com a introdução das ideias e metodologias que utilizo na minha própria prática como curadora da Whitechapel Gallery.
