ARCHIVO is an independent research platform dedicated to photography and visual culture through research, editorial and curatorial activities. Perceiving history as a resource for alternative narratives, ARCHIVO PLATFORM engages in an in-depth understanding of photographic practice as well as its impact in knowledge production. It defines itself through the programming of diverse activities developed within an interdisciplinary research network and guest collaborators who contribute to traverse different disciplines and foster theoretical, practical and critical interventions, creating links between scholarship, artistic and cultural practices. 


Such collaborations are presented through the production of original content and events such as the open access journal ARCHIVO PAPERS, online OPEN SESSIONS that bring together our associated researchers and guest speakers to further explore and discuss the theme of Archivo Papers Journal, and REFRAMING THE ARCHIVE, an international symposium focused on photography and visual culture.


Furthermore, ARCHIVO offers an educational programme with a diverse range of training activities such as workshops and short courses led by artists and scholars, but also the possibility of engaging with the platform through short and long term INTERNSHIP programme.
