We are very proud to present to you Meeting the archives. A magazine that is the result of a workshop for 11 students of VAV 3 and 4. Azul Ehrenberg has created the design for this publication

The students have worked with the open source archives of the Smithsonian Open Access, the Rijksmuseum Rijksstudio and Flickr’s Commons Project and the freemusic archives and their own personal archives to create a Magazine together.

The focus of the workshop was to show how you can create your own personal stories through the images from archives. To see these open archives as toolbox for your work and use them as resource for future art practice. But to also be considerate of the stories these images hold when working with found footage. 

The workshop was developed and taught by Quinsy Gario and Simone Bennett.
