*Due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has been canceled.

Since its inception photography has been employed as a tool to archive and catalogue. In this presentation I will introduce a series of artists who utilize a wide range of methodologies and approaches when presenting (re-presenting) the structure of the archive from various forms of typologies or historical documents, to the construction of fictional/imagined narratives, to appropriation and even through digital manipulation. Many of the artists we will be looking at have used the framework and form of the archive as a subject to re-examine and re-imagine history, memory and identity. Some artists we will discuss include: August Sander, Thomas Hirschhorn, Isaac Julien, The Bechers, Zoe Leonard, Joachim Schmid, Carrie Mae Weems, Christian Boltanski, Debbie Grossman, Mark Dion, and Stan Douglas.
