Tracing the archive through artistic research
We are four NSU artistic researchers – Per Roar, Camilla Graff Junior, Luisa Greenfield and Myna Trustram coming from the respective practices of choreography, performance art, film and writing and are based in Oslo, Copenhagen, Berlin and Manchester.
For the 70th anniversary of NSU we combine in person meetings with monthly Skype discussions, collective and individual writing to build our presentation. Our October visit to the Danish National Archive to be in contact with historical NSU materials serves as the initial impulse to reflect on the function of the archive, our personal relationships to NSU and its archive as well as NSU’s value in broader terms.
Over the course of a year we will collectively build our piece from our various aesthetic orientations and research perspectives to create a living archive that extends beyond the NSU.
