The Living Archives:


Saving and Activating the Heritage of Performing and Visual Arts 




Studia Dramatica no. 2/2021 proposes to researchers in the fields of performing arts, film, visual arts, history, cultural studies, museography, social sciences and humanities a thematic issue dedicated to the preservation and activation of archival heritage, be it textual (documents, chronicles, letters, journals, advertising), iconographic, filmic, or performative.


The intention of the editors is not only to highlight the patrimonial, research and reflection values of archives of any kind, but also to propose new, dynamic, revealing formulas, methodologies, and projects to activate this field, through bold and reliable initiatives for information distribution in the era of instant communication.


In this sense, we propose the following sub-themes, without limiting ourselves to them:




         Classical and innovative archiving systems for the performing and visual arts, including film and media.


         Selection systems between public and personal interest. How to filter and select personal archives


         Image archiving, an independent art? Video archiving, ordering video archives, their circulation.


         New models for distributing the archived patrimony to the public.


         Secondary education, vocational education and the importance of heritage archiving and activation.


         Archiving, documentation, capitalization in the performing arts and cinema.


         Ethical, economic, and technical issues in the process of activating the patrimony of performing and visual arts.
