Lexicon for an Affective Archive Paperback / softback

Edited by Giulia Palladini, Pustianaz


To study an archive or archival materials is to encounter an affective and critical practice involved in the construction of memory.

Lexicon for an Affective Archive, edited by Giulia Palladini and Marco Pustianaz, is an international collection of these encounters, offering glimpses into the intimate relations inherent in finding, remembering (or imagining), and creating an archive.

Bringing together voices from a variety of fields across the humanities, performance studies, and contemporary art, and engaging in a multidisciplinary analysis, this beautifully designed and fully illustrated volume advances the idea of an "affective archive" as a useful conceptual tool a tool which contributes to an understanding of an expanded notion of an archive and its central role in contemporary visual and performing arts.
