"Important studies have been published about the role of archiving in art and the role of replay and re-enactment in performance and substantial literature has been developed about archiving and preservation, but no monograph has yet specifically addressed the changing ways in which archives are being generated, practiced and replayed within the context of the digital economy. Archive Everything aims to further theoretical knowledge on archiving by juxtaposing the history of archiving to the emergent field of digital archiving. Methodologically, the book operates by looking at archives from a number of disciplinary perspectives or lenses, including information studies, architecture, archaeology, postcolonial studies, HCI and new media, autobiography, genomics, anthropology, performance and geography, shifting the attention between the archive as an object and a knowledge-generating process or lab. These different disciplinary lenses, which also benefit from the inclusion of original interviews to leading artists, archivists and theorists operating in the field, are brought together into an interdisciplinary framework that intends to facilitate the generation and use of archives and aid the understanding of archives as a major trope for the 21st century"--Provided by publisher.… (more)
