Recensies en Artikelen

"Archive, Photography and the Language of Administration is a substantial read. Bringing up information, theories, and references in significant density, it supplements and updates previous knowledge on both archives and its theories, hardly omitting any important detail in capturing the entire theme landscape. As such, it would be a valuable source for archivists of all kinds, but even more – it would be a great handbook for studies in the domain."
- Ana Peraica, Leonardo Reviews, September 2021

"Archive, Photography and the Language of Administration offers a series of provocative snapshots that demonstrate how the seemingly clerical work of classifying images—through their formal arrangement, their archival description or their adornment with technical metadata—is an inherently productive and creative means of translating between image and text and code."
- Shannon Mattern, The New School

"Jane Birkin guides streams of thought through the ubiquitous archiving of post-digital culture. She unveils a liquid archive whose practices constantly remodel and reshape the malleable materials we hold over from the past, haunted by the interplay of languages, images and objects. Lucid and comprehensive, with new insights on every page, it not only reformulates again the thriving field of archive studies, but observes the currents that shape a whole, emergent cultural ecology."
- Sean Cubitt, University of Melbourne

Archive, Photography and the Language of Administration

De onderstaande tekst is niet beschikbaar in het Nederlands en wordt in het Engels weergegeven.
This alternative study of archive and photography brings many types of image assemblages into view, always in relation to the regulated systems operating within the institutional milieu. The archive catalogue is presented as a critical tool for mapping image time, and the language of image description is seen as having a life, a worth and an aesthetic value of its own. Functioning at the intersection of text and image, the book combines media culture, archival techniques, and contemporary discourse on art and conceptual writing.
