20 November 2013 / Acting Archives, Marathon

Stefanie Schulte Strathaus presents the history of the Arsenal Institute for Film and Video Art, its beginnings as an institution, and the need for such an institution in Berlin. Several issues are raised in discussion about the politics of maintaining a film archive, especially in relation to its own collection and to the city that houses it. Two projects are highlighted, TheLiving Archive and The Visionary Archive, collaborations that have resulted from projects with a number of practitioners and other archives from around the world.
