Abstract / Summary

The text took Bodor’s review of the book, ‘Interarchive. Archivarische Praktiken und Handlungsräume im zeitgenössischen Kunstfeld/Archival Practices and Sites in the Contemporary Art Field’ (Walther König: Lüneburg/Köln, 2002) as its starting point. It discusses recent archival projects, and explores ‘archiving’ in the context of contemporary art practices and how this challenges the traditional role/function of archives. As an element of her Fellowship, a public ‘discussion’ on issues raised by the article was held in Artpool P60 (Artpool’s exhibition space), October 2004. This was chaired by Dr. Péter György (Reader in Art Theory and Media Studies, University of Budapest).

Additional Information: This text was the main outcome of a research project, ‘Issues and Questions of Archiving Contemporary Art. Contemporary Art Archives’ undertaken by Bodor during her 2004 Raiffeisen Bank Research Fellowship at Artpool Art Research Center, Budapest. The Fellowship built on her prior research into archiving contemporary art, which had been distributed through multimedia presentations in Europe (Galerija SKUC, Ljubljana; Austrian Cultural Forum, London etc). The original version of Bodor’s text was published in ‘Balkon Journal of Contemporary Art’ (2004: no 7, pp. 34-40.) – Hungary’s main contemporary art journal. She subsequently reworked and translated it for permanent archiving on Artpool’s bi-lingual website. The research presented in the article led to an invitation in November 2006 to curate Artpool’s contribution to “‘I Confess That I Was There”: Art, Archives and Locations’ an international project organised by INTERFACE: Research in Art, Technologies and Design, University of Ulster. (This included an exhibition and screening from Artpool’s archive and a paper for the project’s international symposium, ‘Investigating Archives’).
