The archive: if we want to know what this will have meant, we will only know tomorrow. Perhaps. Jacques Derrida

"Imaginary Archive" is a heterogeneous collection of real and fictional printed materials documenting a past whose future never arrived (but perhaps might have arrived, or should have arrived). The project proposes looking back to past moments that have been forgotten or marginalized, that fall beyond dominant historical discourse. This is an attempt to examine one's own history - its blind spots, contradictions, unresolved problems - in relation to itself, in other words, to delineate the zone of possibility between what could have been and what is actually happening today. By bringing together the personal reflections of artists from all over the world, "Imaginary Archive" creates a field for thinking about and discussing urgent issues ranging from political ideologies, economic structures, ecological conditions to what it means to be part of a community, both locally and globally.

The exhibition at the Les Kurbas National Theatre Arts Center will feature new works by artists, activists and cultural workers from Ukraine and other countries, in addition to works that were made for previous versions of "Imaginary Archive" in New Zealand (2010), Ireland (2011) and Austria (2013).

The exhibition will be accompanied by a public lecture and workshop with local Ukrainian artists and activists, led by Sholette and Kopenkina, and a discussion with Ukrainian theorists, activists, artists and the public.
