Animating the Archive

While archives are built to order and preserve our sense of time, how do artists and filmmakers make a “new” sense of time out of past materials?

Animating the Archive serves as a parallel film section to the exhibition, responding to the themes explored in Rushes of Time. From independent features to experimental short forms, the selection extends the enquiry around the archival and the contemporaneous through the cinematic lens, examining the potential of the filmic medium to (re)animate histories.
