Art: Public Realm and Archive

Image by Sarah Cole and Anne Eggbert

This group brings together artists, curators, writers and theoreticians who are engaged with artistic practices and knowledge production within the public realm and the archive. Emphasis is placed on the interdisciplinary.

The group’s research activities address social, technological, economic and political discourses impacting upon geographies and communities in redefining site, place and location within contemporary contexts. It also considers how these questions may inform the archive.

Associated projects employ a range of methodological approaches such as collaboration, negotiation and dialogue. They bring together multi-disciplinary practices that find expression in local, national and international contexts.
