>>        ARCHIVE / MEMORY OF THE SHOW 
>>
>>
>>The archive, as both a facility and a concept in the field of contemporary art has gained prominence in our cultural discourse since the turn of the millennium. What are the task and the meaning of an archive? What possible functions might it serve and what is its purpose? In the context of contemporary art we are mostly acquainted with artists' archives and archives related to museums (permanent collections). But how should an exhibition or a Biennial as an ephemeral event be documented or archived? And isn't a curator's or an artists' archive worth keeping for memory? This discussion focuses on various archival practices and projects of artists, curators, as well as museums and exhibitions, the diversity of functions and changes in use.
