Unmaking Archives


As an extension of Ishara Art Foundation’s exhibition ‘Growing Like A Tree’, this guest lecture engaged with concerns and methodologies of making and unmaking archives in the contemporary era. Taking as its point of departure projects at Asia Art Archive, Nepal Picture Library and the research that went into the making of ‘Growing Like A Tree’ at Ishara Art Foundation, the lecture expanded on curatorial dimensions of archives. The session were organised online by Prof. Katja Arfara for the graduate programme ‘un/making history: Cultural Exploration & Analysis/Structures of Thought & Society.’
