    This is the evolving website of the Curating Living Archives, a research project initiated by Bodor in 2020 and developed with Adam Lockhart. Funded by an RSE workshop grant it presents documentation and contextual information relating to four online workshops (Oct-Dec 2021). Co-convened by Bodor and Lockhart with leading UK-based practitioners in the field of oral history, open source-curating, new media curating and conservation these workshops used the time-based archives at DJCAD as a starting point to explore the curatorial challenges arising from artists’ ‘unruly’ approaches to production and presentation, or the materially complex and changeable nature of artworks and archives that are left behind.

    From 3 February the website will also display a creative writing piece commissioned from PhD candidate Miriam Mallalieu in response to the workshops, and ‘A Script from an Archive: Women’ by Holly Davey commissioned to explore historical time-based archives through a contemporary artist’s work and specifically for online display. Produced from the artist’s research of female artists works in the REWIND collection, it consists of a scripted performance – recorded live on 31 January 2022 as part of a Zoom event -, and a series of digital collages. The website will be used long-term for further curatorial practice/research around the time-based art at DJCAD and open for contribution from other researchers.
