Archive Frenzy – On the practice and methods of archives

For this lecture series, four panels of speakers have been invited to open up discussions on the significance and applications of “archives” in contemporary art production: I. How and why do artists utilize archives; II. Archives and thought patterns; III. Archives and Freedom of Speech; IV. Fieldwork, documentation, and archive.Through these themes and cross-sections of archives and its relevance in contemporary art explored in these four lectures, we hope to illustrate the complex relationship of archives with concepts, actions, and applications; as well as to raise follow-on questions worthy of attention and exploration in the “archive frenzy” of the current artistic environment.
