What is the relationship between archives and publications? Are publications an archive in themselves? In a publication, the credits are apart, specifying who is who and who has done what, and how this should be represented. There is no fiction in the credits, they are the metadata of books; they are a precise reflection of power, authorship and of who is responsible for the Museum’s publications over the past 25 years.
This artist book has been conceived by Enric Farrés Duran as part of the project Things that Happen. Coinciding with the 25th anniversary of MACBA, Farrés Duran has developed a project with the Museum’s historical archive. Through a process of research, the artist has become immersed in the archive, reviewing the limits of its definitions in order to reveals its inner workings.
Enric Farrés Duran combines his artistic work with his university teaching and his independent editorial projects
