Lecture: Lars Petter Hagen
Lars Peter Hagen: Archive Fever
When you enter an archive, you are presented with a wealth of narratives. The memory of an organization is located nowhere in particular but is found everywhere: partly on computer disks and tapes, partly on paper, partly in people's heads. The identity of the organization is constructed from the contents of this archive. The lecture will present my work with the archive, but a maybe even more important part would be to discuss the relationship between compositional and curatorial strategies in general, drawing on my experience as a curator/ artistic director and as a composer.
