Between the concept of archive and the photographic status. Walter Benjamin, Roland Barthes and Jacques Derrida, some relations for the analysis of contemporary artistic practices.

Abstract in spanish

This paper propose to relate writings by Walter Benjamin, Roland Barthes and Jacques Derrida, in order to review some considerations on the archive paradigm in conjunction with the photographic status. Propose to rethink these notions and open some problems for the analysis of contemporary artistic practices that use photographic archives as a strategy for the appropriation and rereading of representations, experiences and historical meanings. Finally, there are also some intersections between these reflections and a series of Latin American contemporary projects that propose creating collections based on domestic archives photographs.
