Speaking at NYU | Radical Archives

Posted by Ian on Apr 5, 2014 in news

Next weekend (April 12), I will be participating in a panel at Radical Archives curated by Mariam Ghani and Chitra Ganesh at NYU’s Asian/Pacific/American Institute.

More information: http://www.nyu-apastudies.org/2012/event/radical-archives/

It’s free and open to the public, so if you happen to be in the city, you can book tickets here.

Curated by Mariam Ghani and Chitra Ganesh, the 2013-2014 A/P/A Institute at NYU Artists-in-Residence UPDATE: Conference sessions to take place at NYU Cantor Film Center (36 E. 8th Street) and the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU (8 Washington Mews). Please see the schedule below for details.

A two-day conference organized around the notion of archiving as a radical practice, by which we mean: archives of radical politics and practices; archives that are radical in form or function; moments or contexts in which archiving in itself becomes a radical act; and considerations of how archives can be active in the present, as well as documents of the past and scripts for the future.The conference is organized around four threads of radical archival practice: Archive and Affect, or the embodied archive; Archiving Around Absence, or reading for the shadows; Archives and Ethics, or stealing from and for archives; and Archive as Constellation, or archive as method, medium, and interface.

Co-sponsored by Asia Art Archive, Hemispheric Institute, NYU History Department, NYU Moving Image Archive Program, and NYU Archives and Public History Program.
