Publication Release – Inward Outward 2020

On the 24th and 25th of January 2020, the first edition of the Inward Outward symposium took place at the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision. Initiated between the Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian and Caribbean Studies (KITLV) and Sound and Vision, and with the support of the Research Center for Material Culture (RCMC), Inward Outward brought together archival practitioners, artists, academics, and researchers to explore the status of moving image and sound archives as they intertwine with questions of coloniality, identity and race.

Today, we’re proud to release Inward Outward, Critical Archival Engagements with Sounds and Films of Coloniality: A Publication of the 2020 Inward Outward Symposium.

Conceived as a way to further discussions that surfaced during the symposium, this digital publication collects different contributions from the speakers of Inward Outward. Across this collection 16 individual texts unfold, exploring coloniality and questioning what “decolonizing” the archive might look like as it intersects with sound and moving image materials and collections, archival practices, artistic approaches, reimagining the archive, silence and erasure, intimacy, and more.

Please feel welcome to dowload the publication.

If you have any thoughts or reflections in reading this collection we invite you to get in touch with us at: inwardoutward@beeldengeluid.nl.
