Abstract [en]

National libraries, museums, and archives are potential sites for knowledge production and shared memory work, but they tend also to be monuments of state power, of selection and exclusion. Film and moving images have always played a formative role in cultural commemoration, and the resistance of cinematic counter-memories has also famously illuminated the critical potential of montage as a historiographical tool. Along with reflections of the theory and practice of political art these thoughts on knowledge production and the politics of media commemoration resonate in contemporary artistic projects that attempt to give voice to a conflicted past, and to make venues for shared memory work; venues that appear in the interstice between excavated and re-framed archival traces and the poetics of narrative imagination and cinematic time-images. I propose to shift our attention from the historical themes per se, to address aesthetic strategies to de-colonize history, and to bridge between the present and the past beyond the structure of an enclosed narrative. The framing and re-framing of compelling traces of the past in cinema also encompass oral history and recorded voices.
