In contrast to the dusty image of the static archive, the exhibition re:working archives shows young artists who (re)work with archives. In doing so, they create their own archives, modify already existing ones, or work with what is left behind. The PLATFORM hall will showcase an artistic range of epistemic diversity and alternative collections that set the past and the future in motion. In addition, representative loans from independent (non-governmental) archives that bring their archival materials into an exchange with the artworks and visitors are part of the exhibition. The exhibition unites artistic and social positions that research in archives, function as archives themselves, collect lost knowledge and confront the past from the now. On view are works that view history and its archiving as an unfinished construct.
