At Work in the Archive Conference

8 - 9 May 2014

School of Art History and World Art Studies Sainsbury Institute for Art, University of East Anglia, Norwich

Contemporary art has an intense interest in the archive, both in a literal and a metaphorical sense. This ‘archival impulse' raises questions regarding the powerful (mal)functions of the archive in our project of modernity that go beyond any narrow disciplinary  interest.

Addressing  questions regarding the possibilities of truth, testimony and mourning through the archive. this conference examines how artists have engaged with the archive in order to explore decolonial futures.
