Presentation Title:

  • Auto-archiving 20 years of Pixelache Helsinki




  • Pixelache Helsinki is a Finland-based creative association on emerging creative practices with almost 20 years of activity in 2022. As part of their 20th anniversary, various strategies were taken to engage with the associational history: 7 processes or events were planned, produced, and reflected upon which engaged with membership involvements, what was left behind in the production office, guided walking tours through the festival’s past venues 20 years before, podcasts, as well as inviting an internationally respected external perspective for ‘another story’. Each offers a reflection on what it might mean to try to archive and narrate an association’s own history from multiple and diverse angles. This presentation is the start of a new story.
