The Living Archive – Archive Work as a Contemporary Artistic and Curatorial Practice project has started in June 2011: Filmmakers, artists and curators are developing projects that take the arsenal’s archive’s holdings as a starting point. Public screenings at arsenal are held once a month, the participants are viewing material at the arsenal’s editing tables, and hold discussions at the Salon.
Salon Populaire is developing a series of events which start from the archive – first and foremost from its films, but also from the other vast source material it contains, be it posters, texts, images, past programs, and more. The research in the archive as well as the screenings and discussions form the base from which the series takes shape.
Participants: Madeleine Bernstorff, John Blue, Tim Blue, Ellen Blumenstein, Oksana Bulgakowa/ Dietmar Hochmuth, Vaginal Davis, Martin Ebner, Heinz Emigholz, Entuziazm (Michael Baute, Volker Pantenburg, Stefan Pethke, Stefanie Schlüter), Harun Farocki, Anselm Franke, Nanna Heidenreich, Tobias Hering, Brent Klinkum, Merle Kröger, Eunice Martins, Angela Melitopoulos, Avi Mograbi, Sabine Nessel, Winfried Pauleit, Constanze Ruhm, Susanne Sachsse, Ines Schaber, Philip Scheffner, Stefanie Schlüter, Marcel Schwierin, Marc Siegel, Hito Steyerl, Dorothee Wenner, Ian White, Nicole Wolf, Florian Wüst, Florian Zeyfang.
