Ruins in the Archive: constructing visual histories in photography and broadcast media

THURSDAY 14 NOVEMBER 10:00 – 18:00

This one-day Colloquium will engage with visual archives in response to either loss or potential loss due to the destruction of war. The colloquium proceeds in terms of four thematics: Entering the Archive, Interpreting the Archive, Narrating the Archive and Playing the Archive. Discussing historical examples of visual archives compiled in times of crisis allows for approaching also the question of archives of current conflicts and adequate responses by academic communities.

Organised by Joanne Anderson (Warburg Institute), Mick Finch (Central Saint Martins, UAL) and Johannes von Müller (Bilderfahrzeuge)
