As Boris Groys says, history occurs in a space between the archive and life, between the past that is being collected and the reality, understood as everything that has not been collected. Together we will explore this space between. The symposium will take a look at different contexts, cracks, how our presence is formed and then as accumulation, the archiving of different types of knowledge shapes its current narratives. We will also examine what has not been collected and archived. How can we look for the missing pieces of history in the cracks that shape our reality and presence. History follows a formal logic where the past, present and future are not thought of psychologically, not historically in the classical sense of the word, not existentially, but in a purely formal way, from the point of view of archival inclusion and exclusion. We will explore the forms and tools of archiving, care, interventions, we can approach our local histories in various contexts and constantly re-evaluate what is excluded and what is not, and how we can create scenarios for possible more inclusive futures.
