Which archive could generate the future rather than preserve the past?
Coming out of the experience of d o m i n o k i n g d o m - where each work lives on in the next because works are made as a reaction on previous ones - I am interested in delving more into the possibility of generating present and future out of a direct confrontation with past experiences: formats that make the past, present and future influence each other, can trigger a constant re-evaluation and challenge of our knowledge and perception.
Archiving, be it in the artistic, educational or any other field, is considered important because it 'proves' the (past) existence of a past events and thus enables them to continue to exist and to be (re)visited. But imagine an archive that is not trying to capture fixed 'images', that is not only referential. An archive that is a living process that keeps modifying itself constantly, triggering new processes instead of being a mere documentation, always lost in the past.
How does an archive functions that is looking forwards instead of looking back?
This question will be explored through reading, discussion and guest lectures.
