The archive is omnipresent and always temporary. It reflects the realities of the past – while archived knowledge at the same time shapes the present. How do archives and their objects translate historical realities into contemporary narratives?
What does this mean for the structure of archives, for their users, technologies, and forms of knowledge production? What can archives do for today’s societies? The Whole Life: Archives and Reality gathers objects, artists, researchers, and practitioners in the space of the Lipsiusbau to address these questions in week-long program of archive viewings, public lectures, evening events and an international congress.
