In June of 2021 the Input Party launched the new series Footnotes. In this section of our website we invite inspiring people from the Input Party community to reflect on the artist’s image archive and how found footage can infiltrate the artistic proces.
For our second Footnote we invited curator and photo analist Frank van der Stok to contribute to our platform. Van der Stok submerged himself in the extensive photo collection of the Library of Congress and extracted four photo collections from the archive. In this collections, and in an additional text, van der Stok offers a new perspective on these photographs almost forgotten.
