First volume of a hors-series' collection focusing on the theory and practice of republishing and archiving.
Republications is the first volume of Archive Journal's hors-séries. Each issue of the series is commissioned to authors whose research is close to the editorial line of the journal. For the inaugural issue Archive's editors have invited curators and art critics Virginie Bobin and Mathilde Villeneuve. Taking as a starting point the notion of republication, the contents of this volume have been compiled through a collective process over the course of multiple editorial meetings in Berlin, Aubervilliers and Paris between 2011 and 2012.
These editorial meetings picked up on some of the questions that have been taken under considerations in the production of the contents of the volume Republications, question such as: How do we pass from the first occurrence of something to subsequent occurrences? From a given context of visibility, publication and communication to another context? How to address the issue of modes of circulation and the degree of repetition of information, as well as its relation to power (who seeks to disseminate and why?). A single publication cannot resolve all of these questions but rather defining some answers. Republications and the next issue that will be entitled Circulation are conceived as a toolbox for investigating these questions further. The cover and the first pages of each volume of the hors-séries and the journal itself are designed to include excerpts from each contributions functioning as multiple points of entrance into the contents.
