the Archive the politics and poetics of collecting
Inside the Archive is a series of lectures, presentations, tours and screenings
examining the ways information, objects and data are stored, classified and displayed.
For the duration of the research period, De Geuzen will be gathering materials
related to the impulse to collect and catalogue. Relevant URLs, books and visual
materials will be housed in the Geuzen Studio and made accessible through regular
public events. The idea is to create an open resource where events provide public
moments of critical reflection and debate.
the Archive the politics and poetics of collecting was launched
on December 15, 2000 with If objects
tell a story... a lecture by Susan Yelavich, curator at Cooper-Hewitt
National Design Museum, New York.
As the project evolves materials and information will be placed on this website.
