Radical Archives Conference @ NYU, 4/11-12

A two-day conference organized around the notion of archiving as a radical practice, by which we mean: archives of radical politics and practices; archives that are radical in form or function; moments or contexts in which archiving in itself becomes a radical act; and considerations of how archives can be active in the present, as well as documents of the past and scripts for the future.The conference is organized around four threads of radical archival practice: Archive and Affect, or the embodied archive; Archiving Around Absence, or reading for the shadows; Archives and Ethics, or stealing from and for archives; and Archive as Constellation, or archive as method, medium, and interface.
Register by Wednesday, April 9, via the conference website.


Co-sponsored by Asia Art Archive, Hemispheric Institute, NYU History Department, NYU Moving Image Archive Program, and NYU Archives and Public History Program.
