141 | 2018

Throughout all of last year, we’ve devoted much thought to the archive as a compendium of documents, a space for analyzing history, an institution, and a form of cultural memory—in its aesthetics as well as its politics, as a material practice and as an idea. We’ve done this with an intensity that quite possibly still […]

Andrea Palašti: A Walk through the Zoo

“In the accompanying ideology, animals are always the observed. The fact that they can observe us has lost all significance. They are the objects of our ever-extending knowledge. What we know about them is an index of our power, and thus an index of what separates us from them. The more we know, the further […]

Markus Krottendorfer: Golden Years – Surprise Pink
An evening with 6 slide shows and music

The performative slide shows by Markus Krottendorfer, situated between photography and film, show “common” places (or non-places) taken from everyday life like bus terminals, fish markets, or shopping centers which are then juxtaposed with architectural manifestations of power like military bases or financial hubs. Here he is not concerned primarily with the various architectural structures, […]

“There are people who want the past to be repeated, so they ensure that we cannot remember it,” as Priya Basil notes in Lettre International No. 118, citing Paul Krugman. I can hardly imagine a more apt description of the consolidation of reactionary political powers, now playing out in Austria as well, on the heels […]

Un-Curating the Archive II

Although archives safeguard and preserve documents, they are not always accessible to the public, or else access to these documents is considerably restricted. So archives regulate the relationship between the visible, the accessible, and the concealed. For this reason, it is often exceedingly difficult to reconstruct the histories/stories of institutions. Since the year 2017, Camera […]
