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.

Archive Journal is always interested in visiting archives and discovering
collections of printed matter. Please is you come across material that might be relevant to our research get in touch with us.

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.
