The normative order and authoritarian use of conventional archives has long been criticised. This publication investigates the digitally informed transformation and multiplication of archives today, in conjunction with the increase in both accessibility and the amount of data produced, stored, and circulated. Despite improved search capabilities, documents, photographs and other images are in danger of vanishing. Yet new knowledge, connotations and materialities are also emerging. Through various texts and artworks, a selection of contemporary artistic- and research-based approaches is represented in the book: approaches to existing archives, to the act of collecting images, and to the creation new archives.
