Eye Conference 2018
Activating the Archive
The annual Eye International Conference explores contemporary archival and academic debates, catering to film heritage professionals, scholars, archivists, curators and restorers. This year, more than sixty speakers from around the globe will represent this diverse community of professionals.
How can audio-visual collections be mobilized for the common good? How can (future) preservationists, curators and programmers be trained to achieve this goal? In May 2018, the Eye International Conference will explore answers to these and other questions, in a programme entitled Activating the Archive. Audio-Visual Collections and Civic Engagement, Political Dissent and Societal Change.
The Eye International Conference 2018 will also celebrate the 15-year anniversary of the MA programme Preservation & Presentation of the Moving Image (P&P) at the University of Amsterdam (UvA), whose approximately 150 alumni are active in museums, archives and universities around the world. Eye, the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision and the Living Media Arts (LIMA) are partners in the program offered at UvA. The conference will be an occasion for P&P alumni to reconnect, and for students and staff of audio-visual archiving and curation programmes worldwide to get in touch and reflect together on past and future endeavours.
