Archives are not only places to collect, assemble and categorize
documentary information but also sites of historical struggle over the
writing, filming, collection, destruction, translation and interpretation.
The question of management of cultural heritage cannot be simply limited to
processes of preservation and conservation, but also it requires an
investigation of the ways in which archiving creates new forms of academic
and artistic studies. In other words, these studies on archives, instead of
merely focusing on data collection, scrutinize how the past -in the form of
a film, a text, an image, is being recreated and reimagined in the present.
Thus, forgetting the archive envisages a process that is integral to
remembering and recreating.

The Film Department of the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism is going
to launch a website of film archive, a great majority of which consists of
silent films from the first half of the past century-1900s. Regarding this
crucial moment in cultural history, the Cinema Television Department of
İstanbul Şehir University is organizing an international symposium,
‘Forgetting the Archive’. The symposium aims to provide an academic and
artistic platform for the discussion of philosophical and theoretical
issues pertaining to the archives. To this end, the symposium brings
together scholars, archive directors, and artists from the United Kingdom,
Austria, Germany, India, Netherlands and Turkey.

The goals of the symposium are not limited to exploring and discussing the
meaning of archives, as it further aims at developing a cultural dialogue
and connection between different academic and artistic networks, as well as
initiating international collaborations and partnerships.

İstanbul Şehir University envisages this international event as the first
in a series of annual symposiums that will draw on the participation of
international scholars and artists in collaboration with worldwide
universities, archives and cultural institutions.
