Arkivfantasier: begäret till ett dokumenterat förflutet som ett problem inför framtiden

Abstract [en]

As most historians are well aware, an archive is always founded with the future in mind. Even though most archives do not exist for the historian, they have a bureaucratic function directed towards guaranteeing a "recollection" of a certain institutional organization and societal status quo. However, even the most radical and social constructivist of historians tends to foreclose this obvious notion in her quest for hermeneutical understanding. Through a critical analysis of a quote from the art exhibition "Lost and found. Queering the archive", this article suggests a problematization of the common use and definition of the archive based on a radical (non-)historiography where neither the future, nor history, can serve as legitimate ontologies for research or identity claims.
