The Whole Life. An Archive Project

2018—2022

The collaborative research initiative, The Whole Life. An Archive Project, asks what roles the archive and its objects play in the major transformations of current times, and what this means in turn for the structure of the archive, its users, its technologies, and its forms of knowledge production.
