“Today, the will to archive is a powerful impulse in contemporary culture”

Mike Featherstone, Archive (2006: 595)


“the street is my archive, the built environment is my archive. However, I walk now in the city that I wish to describe then”

Patrice Joyce, The Politics of the Liberal Archive (1999: 47)


“we should begin to see all documentation as intervention, and all archiving as part of some sort of collective project. Rather than being the tomb of the trace, the archive is more frequently the product of the anticipation of collective memory. Thus the archive is itself an aspiration rather than a recollection”

Arjun Appadurai, Archive and Aspiration (2003)
