Framer Framed Open Call: Archiving the Present

Archiving the Present is a workshop series focused on translating archival collections into data and gaining practical skills in data modelling and ontology. Hosted by Framer Framed in collaboration with Archival Consciousness, the workshops are open to artists, collectives and archivists in cultural institutions, communities and social movements. Archiving the Present is led by artist and researcher Mariana Lanari and takes place on 31 May, 14 June, 4 July, and 12 July.

Apply here by 10 May 2024!

Framer Framed will be launching a new online archive and we want to share the infrastructure with artists, cultural workers, collectives and community archives. In the pilot programme Archiving the Present we aim to create a manual for archiving and preparing the collection based on the use cases of the participants.

The workshops will be guided by Mariana Lanari, who together with graphic designer Remco van Bladel is co-founder of Archival Consciousness. They collaborate with libraries and cultural archives to implement methods and infrastructure to turn their physical collection into data.

Workshops
Starting on 31 May, participants will meet every two weeks to work on their archives, while also leaving space for individual work between sessions. We’re looking for dedicated and hard-working participants who feel the urgency and importance of archiving and want to know how to translate their archives into data. This workshop series aims to bring together like-minded ‘archivists’ who can engage in conversation and engage on presenting an archive.

Throughout Archiving the Present, we will approach the archive as a system, and work layer by layer. We begin with the humble ‘character’ – the smallest element in computation but an essential base element of the archive model. Then we move to the word, the sentence, the page, the book, the collection and finally the architecture of the archive. At the end of the series the group will return to an overview of data collection, curation and preparation. Archiving has no end, but by the final workshop we will cover the entire lifecycle of data. Each participant will have their own model and give a final presentation of their work-in-progress archives.

Are you a cultural archivist looking to gain digital skills and work with data? Or do you have your own archive or archival project and need a new burst of motivation? Do you want to develop your technical, ethical and editorial skills in relation to archiving? Send your motivation to opencall@framerframed.nl before or on 10 May.
