What stories can be told through archiving? How is lived experience registered? How can technologies be used to collectively and urgently question the instituting and law-making forces of the archive? This panel addresses the affective power of circulating images and the costs of their censorship and erasure. It emphasizes the (im)possible intimacy of archiving contemporary or historical events, and focuses on how intuitions, intensities, and differences can be registered. The speakers explore the potential of using digital tools, such as screenshots, montage, and machine learning to address censorship, assist human rights investigations, and foster transnational solidarity. Practices, methodologies, and values are brought together to discuss the transformative potential of living archives for evidence and resistance.

The panel is organized in collaboration with Winchester School of Art.
