NEW! DEVELOPING AGENTS: WORKING IN AND WITH PHOTOGRAPHIC ARCHIVES
Gabrielle Moser, May 22, 6PM
Photographic archives are unusual spaces where knowledge is ordered and histories are narrated. While many artists and writers work with archival materials, few of us have any formal training in information sciences or archival research. This workshop aims to develop a glossary of terms for working in the archive, integrating ideas taken from readings, case studies from local archives, and examples from contemporary photographic practice. Participants are encouraged to bring in-progress work and research questions to workshop with the group and as we collectively consider the strategies—both practical and theoretical—that we can deploy when engaging with archival materials.
