Inside the Archive – the politics and poetics of collecting

Inside the Archive
is a series of lectures, presentations, tours and screenings examining the ways information, objects and data are stored, classified and displayed. For the duration of the research period, De Geuzen will be gathering materials related to the impulse to collect and catalogue. Relevant URLs, books and visual materials will be housed in the Geuzen Studio and made accessible through regular public events. The idea is to create an open resource where events provide public moments of critical reflection and debate.
Inside the Archive – the politics and poetics of collecting was launched on December 15, 2000 with If objects tell a story... a lecture by Susan Yelavich, curator at Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, New York.
As the project evolves materials and information will be placed on this website.
