Luise Schröder presents her video UNAMERICA - Relocating memories
ReSI - Remembering Spaces of Internment proposes a broad reflection on the spaces of internment, and particularly on their erasure, of which they are often the object. These places are present throughout the 20th century and on all inhabited continents. Even if they are placed under the designation of the ‘exception,’ their presence is structural. However, they have rarely been the subject of transversal studies that take into account the extent of the phenomenon. ReSI proposes to establish a research network in order to collectively reflect on the subject.
The current workshop in Paris deals with three specific areas: Institutions and the logics that preside over their establishment, management and dissolution, the materiality of buildings, their uses and traces and memory and re-membering of places of internment and the practices related to them.

The invited guests are photographers, curators and academics who work with photographic collections, archives and estates. What connects their work, what do they consider as their task in preserving and managing photographic legacies and what is their role is in evaluating and classifying this heritage. Furthermore, the question of what the artistic handling of existing photographic material from archives and collections can add to a historically scientific treatment of these archival records will be examinded. Where are the limits of the respective access and how do power relations inscribed in the archive can be questioned. Above all, the significance of private photographic collections and albums for research, art and socio-political discourses will finally be discussed.
