The paper Archiving Bodies presented at The Nordic Summer University, Turku (March 2013)

Living Archives project members Erling Björgvinsson and Anders Høg Hansen went to the Popmodernism Circle at the Nordic Summer University in Turku, Finland, to present their paper entitled Archiving Bodies – Bodies, Leisure and (territorial) Politics.

The author’s use Malraux’s problematic notion of “the museum without walls” – where disparate items can reside side by side, forming arbitrary collages – as its main focal point. They also raise the question “who can be considered archivists?” and tries to answer it through two case studies: City Symphony Malmö, a collaborative documentary film project, and Songlines, a project still-in-the-making where the aim is to bring historical songs into the urban present.

This paper has not been officially published but we aim to share it on this website shortly.
