INSIDE/OUT Lecture Series: Visiting guest Professor Craig Dworkin: The Impossible Archive of the Avant-Garde

As part of the Inside Out lecture series, visiting lecturer Craig Dworkin will be giving five talks, 'The Impossible Archive of the Avant-Garde' is the first talk in his series.

Starting from Jacques Derrida’s theory of “archive sickness,” this lecture teases out some of the paradoxes involved in curating a digital archive of the avant-garde, and why such an endeavour is a theoretical impossibility and a practical necessity. Using media-specific analyses of selected literary artifacts, the talk proposes a law of conservation for the signification of materiality.




This event is part of the INSIDE/OUT Lecture Series 2016/17 organised by Professor Simon Morris. For more information on the series visit www.leedsbeckett.ac.uk/insideout
