Archives, Art and Activism Symposium at CHS webpage

News: Oct 21, 2015

The symposium Archives, Art and Activism: Exploring Critical Heritage Approaches to Global Societal Challenges, held on 3-5 September 2015 at University College London in collaboration with CHS/Archives Gothenburg, is now presented on the CHS webpage. The organisers of the conference were Andrew Flinn UCL, Astrid von Rosen UGOT, and Alda Terracciano, independent artist and activist/affiliated UCL. Building on innovative engagements at UCL and UGOT, the symposium aimed at combining scholarly, activist and artistic approaches, promoting a new flexible participatory and collaborative methodology that has started to emerge and is suitable for exploring complex societal challenges in relation to archives. The mapping, exploration and practical testing of transformative hybridities require a structure that allows space for a truly reflective practice that moves, thinking foreword beyond a simple display of individual research outcomes. Hence the structure of the symposium, which grounded discourse and the discoveries lying along its path through moments of activities as well as reflection, talking about archives, but also actively documenting activities with the aim of creating an archive of the symposium. During the three days in London participants examined how engagement with archives and cultural heritage material with, through, and in relation to art and activism impacts on the formation and articulation of individual and collective identity, memory, cultural values and power relations. Traces of these engagements are now accessible on the CHS webpage. Welcome to visit here.
