Remote Civic Studio
Everyday ArchivesCivic Studio Winter 2020
“Collections have an anthropomorphic, fetishist feel to them. They are both about our failings and about our successes. They signify relations between things and ideas, between the inheritance of meaning and its erasure over time.”
-"Collecting Life’s Unknowns" by Clementine Deliss, in Decolonizing the Museum
The Everyday Archive collection seen here is composed of objects that each Civic Studio member brought in and shared weekly throughout the semester. Each person in the studio has accumulated a collection of pieces that make up their individual Everyday Archive.
