In September 2019 Armin Linke engaged international scholars in a performative seminar that questioned the nature and logic of archives, short-circuiting his artistic images with the cataloguing systems of photo documentation collections, such as those of the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz and the Istituto Geografico Militare. The journal presents the reflections and methodological coordinates that emerged during the day of studies curated by Costanza Caraffa, accompanied by a photographic essay by Armin Linke made within the institutions involved.
