Open Archief x Input Party

In the context of the project Open Archief, the participating archives asked us to host an Input Party for this years participants.
Together with the artists we came together in the Institute of Social Hostory Amsterdam to share research images, references and stories. We talked about their practices and projects and about the trajectories of re-use of archival material.

The project Open Archief is an initiative of The Institute of Social History, Het Nieuwe Instituut and Het Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid.
This years participants are: Alice Wong & Simpson Tse, Daria Kiseleva and Remco Torenbosch. Their projects will be developed in collaboration with the participating archives and will be exhibited in the fall of 2022.

Summer 2021:


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.

Also check out our first Footnote Wall Tides by Anne-Laure Ruffin!
