    A workshop and seminar developed and delivered as part of 'What is a Living Archive. Curating the Unruly Materiality of Contemporary Art' project. Convened by Judit Bodor, Principal Investigator of Curating Living Archives, with Roddy Hunter, Head of Sculpture and Environmental art at The Glasgow School of Art. Taking The Attic Archive (1980-2010) of formerly Dundee-based artist Peter Haining as a starting point the workshop explored experimental and generative curatorial approaches to articulating pre-internet, peer-to-peer networked art practice in a post-digital context. Invited speakers included Theresa Kneppers and Artemis Gryllaki (The Borough Road Collection Archive), Ruth Catlow and Dr Marc Garrett (Furtherfield). Participants included curators and archivists from collections looking after elements of The Attic Archive including University of Dundee, Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest and National Library of Scotland to discuss and develop possible open-source curatorial approaches to make this archive accessible.
