Model of an Archive

Summer semester 2022

As part of the BA Cultural Studies at the University of Art and Design Linz, students were conducting research at the VALIE EXPORT Center Linz for one semester.
Lecturers Nicole Alber, Dagmar Schink
Students Corinna Bodner, Lukas Greiderer, Julia Höglinger, Melanie Jussel, Valentina Ritt, Laura Rumpl, Christin Seirl, Lindita Shabani, Tabea Tremmel

The course participants had the opportunity to carry out the individual steps of archival indexing (inventory, systematization, archival description, keywording) on the basis of VALIE EXPORT's artistic ideas for public space and Kunst am Bau projects, which can be found as models and in various archival materials at the Center. Based on the models, references between artistic works and archival materials were researched and brought together.
The results of this search for traces will be presented on the occasion of International Archives Day at the VALIE EXPORT Center Linz.
