Archive of the Temporary

The continuously evolving archive stores various materials on castors: models, books, films without strict categorization and order. It is “a horizontal space for visitors to attend to and discuss things, books, talks, and workshops. This archive includes research on material forms, devices, and media that were actually created to document the temporary and to conserve the ephemeral. Part of this archive is the media theory by French philosopher Régis Debray that explores conservation and transportation techniques for the ephemeral.”
