This debate during the Festival l’Histoire de l’Art will tackle the question of ephemerality in relation to exhibitions. It will serve to question how the memory of an exhibition can be perpetuated after its first and/or only occurrence. For that archives and other forms of traces related to an exhibition will be subject of inquiry. ASAP’s contributing curator, Léa-Catherine Szacka (Labex Cap, Centre Pompidou), will propose an historical overview of ephemeral constructions in the context of architectural exhibition to later look more particularly at the case study of Archéologie de la Ville, presented by Viennese architects Haus-Rucker-Co at the Centre Pompidou in 1977. Remi Parcollet (Labex Cap, Centre Pompidou) will then examine the case of installation shots and the way in which these documents act as traces to keep the memory of an exhibition. Finally, Susanna Munston (Université Paris VIII) will look at the particularity of museum’s visitors as the source of exhibition’s traces and memory.
