The archive of the art and performance centre Mousonturm in Frankfurt includes documentation of over 20 years of cultural activities, including programs, budget plans, videos, visual documentation and personal notes kept by in files and boxes. Starting from found objects and documents, the interactive installation form a course along a timeline, that crosses the past and open up to a potentail future (from 1988 to 2028). A complex set of parallel narratives, open to be re-arranged and extended by the exhibition’s public aim at dispersing the idea of an accurate memory of one past into a broad range of points and views on the culture centre’s activities and dynamics.

Commissioned by Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Frankfurt am Main
The exhibition included a video installation by Pedro Lagoa, based on material from the video archive.
