Archives and Art

The Journal of Archival Organization invites submissions for a special issue on Archives and Art. While a broad range of articles on this topic will be considered, some questions for reflection include:

  • Why is the archiving of art important? What does it mean to archive art?
  • Why is the discussion of the archive important to understanding art?
  • What are some peculiarities of art archives that require special care or an understanding of the art? How does art influence archival processing?
  • How can archives be used in art?
  • Could art be considered an archive of sorts, a repository that transmits cultural heritage and other values?
  • Can art or archives be neutral? Do they share certain values?
  • What are the similarities and differences in the ways that archival collections and art collections are acquired? What does this say about their relationship to colonialism?

Submission Instructions

It is aimed to publish the special issue during 2023.
