About this session

Archivo Papers, Volume 4, 2024


The Archivo Papers' editorial team and volume Guest-editors are pleased to invite you to join us for the launch of this volume and participate in the Q&A session with them and some of the contributing authors.

The collaborative project 'Archive and Conflict: Archives and the Techno-Aesthetics of Datafication' between the Archivo Platform and the Global Art Archive Research Network (Universitat de Barcelona) has resulted in the publication of this journal volume. It explores the dynamic nature of archives and the significant role of photography and other lens-based media in shaping our understanding of historical and cultural legacies, especially those related to conflicts. By investigating the convergence of documentary sources in both analogical and digital archival contexts, and the ways in which they express imaginaries, representations, and memories, this volume seeks to elucidate the complex mechanisms that influence our perceptions of the past, the present and thus the possibility of realising more equitable futures. Through this exploration, contributors examine how archives serve as indispensable tools for comprehending, preserving, and reinterpreting cultural and historical narratives related to conflict events.
