UNBOXING THE ARCHIVE - 400 years of stories, Jan 11 - Feb 10


During the course of 400 years the National Archives has preserved and collected diverse societal information including everything from medieval letters to current digital data. The National Archive is a necessary part of our democracy, our common cultural heritage and is therefore open to the public. In the archives you find countless stories from individual destinies to significant societal changes.

In this exhibition some of these stories will be highlighted and interpreted by second year design students from HDK.

Each student selected an object from their surroundings which then was matched with relatable archive material. Out of these two components, the object and the archive material, the students further developed the narratives into a new piece. Comparatively there is great variation in the archive material given and in the individual working methods. The students have chosen to work in materials such as graphics, textile, sculpture, ceramics and wood-just to name a few.
