The symposium will focus on Witnessing/Care & the Archive, with the terms “witnessing” and “care” articulated alongside each other. We mobilise Witnessing/Care together, as complementary practices, calling to each other as tools to move through the archive, but that may also be wielded in tension. These two words are deployed as verbs to highlight a form of implication, a refusal to conceive of archival work as a passive performance.
