Archive Journal owes its name to archives and its contents are structured around the same defining principle that generates an archive, the complex formation of links established between a collection of records. Therefore, the concept of the archive is central to the journal’s concerns, particularly regarding the relations between various documentary forms and the politics of memory. In an archive the meaning of a document is always up for grabs, as its past uses coexist with future possibilities. What is open for renegotiation is the relation between a document’s past and its present meanings, its present forms of circulation and uses. Archive Journal seeks links in space and time and is as interested in what is not there as what is, the documentation as well as the absence of evidence.

Inventory

The next volume will contain
a selection of materials part of
Inventory and will be released in 2015. Inventory is a representation of a research journey in the form of an archive of printed matters collected in Eastern and Southern Europe. Changes taking place in these regions and their impact on cultural and socio-political structures are seen as a possibility to question European cultural establishments and their ‘patriarchal’ archives.

Re-publications

As part of Archive Journal, a thematic book is produced.
Re-publications is edited by Virginie Bobin and Mathilde Villeneuve and will include contributions revolving around how changing the context of a publication can effect new publics. In this frame, the editors invited to contribute practitioners and artists such as: Mathieu Kleybec Abonnenc, Lene Berg, Pauline Boudry & Renate Lorenz, Christophe Bruno, Foundland, Jeff Guess, Alexis Guillier, Rémy Héritier, Franck Leibovici, Sohrab Mohebbi, Julien Prévieux, Sally Price, Anna Theodorides, Marie Voignier and Vassilis Salpistis.

Art, like all fields of thought, is buttressed by the real. Many artists tap into the public domain for its available mass of information which will become the material for their work. Artists choose to take this material, more or less known, often previously circulated, and suspend it for a time before they re-communicate it in a different way. Working from within a system of accelerated circulation of information – where data, stories and images cross borders (geographic and disciplinary) like rumors which expand and contract in function of their sites of emergence, are confirmed or infirmed depending on their relaters – the artist carves out a new potential mediatisation. From simple slippages of context to transformative operations that act on the objects themselves, each artist adopts specific methods of representation.

Archive is a platform for cultural research and debate. It brings
together activists and cultural practitioners in an adaptable and
non-hierarchal structure with the aim to foster a unique space
for discussion and exchange. Archive is engaged in a wide range
of activities including publishing and exhibition making. Archive
Books produces readers, monographs and artists’ books as well
as journals focusing on contemporary cultural production and reception. Located in Berlin, Archive Kabinett is both a library/
bookshop showcasing a selected range of printed matters, and
simultaneously a space for lectures, screenings and exhibitions.
Archive Journal is a biannual cross-disciplinary journal. As its name suggests, Archive Journal is primarily concerned with the
notion of documentation but also with contemporary uses of
translation and recirculation. Archive Appendix is the design
department that brings a conceptual approach to the relation
between text and image.
