Politics of Memory-cover

Politics of Memory
Marco Scotini, Elisabetta Galasso (Eds.)


The anthology Politics of Memory aims to investigate the document as such, as an objective trace left by events, as material proof or the creation of reality – the strategies with which they transform a state of memory into state memory, those by means of which a historical removal is enacted, those, ultimately, in which there is an attempt to challenge permanent or temporary amnesia, opening up to the future. The artists and filmmakers contributing to this publication represent the most advanced area on an international scale of a research that inaugurates a new relationship between artistic practices and the documentary.

The artists’ contributions have been collected within the context of a cycle of conferences held between 2010 and 2013 and are re-presented here in a format aimed at highlighting their connections and common research perspectives. To this end, the volume is articulated in four sections and does not follow the chronological order of the conferences. The first section is dedicated to archival practices, the second to the memory of conflicts, the third to the documentary dispositive and the last to the representation of migration as a social practice and as the enactment of breaching boundaries.

Monday Begins on Saturday
Ekaterina Degot, David Riff (Eds.)

Contributions by Jan Verwoert, Our Literal Speed, Boris Groys, Pavel Pepperstein, Renata Salecl, Benedict Seymour, Konstanze Schmitt, Pelin Tan and Anton Vidokle, Ritwik Ghatak, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Clemens von Wedemeyer, Stephan Dillemuth, Roee Rosen, Christian von Borries, Keti Chukhrov, Josef Dabernig, Olga Chernysheva, Władysław Strzemiński, Carlfriedrich Claus et al.

Monday Begins on Saturday is the title of a fantasy novel from the 1960s about a magical research institute in the Soviet Union, written by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky. It is also the title of the first edition of Bergen Assembly, a new triennial of contemporary art. The project—which takes the form of an exhibition and this book—imagines a contemporary rewriting of the novel as an archipelago of fictitious research institutes. Through an aggregate narrative of essays, works of fiction, artworks, heterogeneous research materials, and curatorial notes, it delves into the idea that contemporary “artistic research” may be the place where the dialectical materialist magic of Monday Begins on Saturday has its afterlife.
