The concept of the film archive and its evolution in the new media
Taking into account the technological advancements during the 1990s, with the beginning of the widespread usage of the internet and the progressive digitisation of everyday life, it may not be a coincidence that three great European thinkers entered the discussion concerning the concept of the archive at the same period. Derrida's Archive Fever is published in 1995, and the films Lisbon Story, by Wenders, and Ulysses Gaze, by Angelopoulos, are released in 1994 and 1995 respectively.
Even if the goals of an archive and an archivist do not change, their meaning, their characteristics and their operation are constantly reinterpreted and evolving. Two decades later, we are hereby approaching these concepts again, now under the prism of the new media and the internet era.
How can we trace the concept of the archive, and specifically the film archive, in the context of the ever evolving technological advancements? What is the role of the archivist in the modern era? These are some of the questions we will try to analyse and possibly answer
in this paper.
