Objektiv #9

We titled this issue Archive Art in order to look into how different artists work with archive. 

This is not a new tendency in contemporary art, but several recent exhibitions and institutional initiatives, both in Norway and internationally, indicate that there are many artists who work with found material. Perhaps the lack of physical presence makes the photograph seem absent, and that this is why we are drawn to the archive. With contributions from artists like Haris Epaminonda&Daniel Gustav Cramer, Helene Sommer, Emil Salto and Jumana Manna, we hope to get a bigger picture of the tendency.
