#058 ARCHEOLOGY OF THE PRESENT

Curated by Marina Papazyan.
Marina Papazyan is a student at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. She worked for Impakt in 2017 and curated this program as part of her activities for Impakt.

Not all recent images fill our memory, in fact most are buried until a moment of recovery or retrieval. The videos in this program recover and retrieve past images and individuals’ stories. This is what Deleuze willfully called the archeology of the present, which does not take us ‘’to prehistory, but to the deserted layers of our times which bury our own phantoms.’’
