Three Archives in Conversation
Entre Nous

  • Tue, November 8, 2022 | 7 PM
  • Reid Hall | 4, rue de Chevreuse, 75006 Paris

Archives are imagined to be well-ordered places of safe-keeping; but most discoveries are made in unsuspected and unordered repositories of the past. Lynnette Widder, João Pina, and Mila Turajlić will talk about their experiences with archives as a catalyst for their work – archives neglected by history, maintained by families, sequestered in institutions, left behind in unculled bequests.

The conversation is in celebration of Widder’s architecture book Year Zero to Economic Miracle: Hans Schwippert and Sep Ruf in Postwar West German Building Culture and Turajlić’s documentary film Ciné-guerrillas: The Scenes From the Labudović Reels, and in anticipation of Pina’s forthcoming book on the discovery of family photographs of the Tarrafal concentration camp in Cape Verde.
