Shaking up the Shelves of History:
A Visual Essay on Media Images from the Recent Political Past of Greece
Edited by Stefanos Tsivopoulos and Hilde de Bruiijn, published by Japsam Books
Archive Crisis is a visual essay based on a series of previously unpublished images from Greek (media) archives collected by visual artist Stefanos Tsivopoulos. The book explores the mechanisms of visual culture in a mediatized democracy, and their effect on the production of collective memory.
In close collaboration with the artist we have been working with a range of photos from distinct archival sources. The book is divided into three acts: Installation, Transmission, Reaction. Followed by an appendix with essays by Dimitris Antoniou, Hilde de Bruijn and Alfredo Cramerotti.
