‘Endnotes’ is part of the MAP ‘Footnoting the Archive’ project curated by guest editors Suzanne van der Lingen & Claire Walsh for Edinburgh Art Festival 2016 and includes new work by Peter Amoore (with Raphael Rubinstein), Annet Dekker, Aideen Doran and Victoria Horne. ‘Endnotes’ is presented as a limited edition publication designed by Osasto and as a series of online commissions on the MAP website. Copies of the printed publication are available throughout EAF 2016 at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop and the EAF kiosk (9-11 Blair Street).

Responding to the theme of endnotes, and coinciding with the completion of the MAP online archive, Amoore, Dekker, Doran and Horne examine methods of approaching archives as creative, active platforms rather than static repositories of documented content. Each propose critical approaches to archiving, contemporary art and digital production.

The programme includes a discussion event on 13 August, 14:00-17:00, at Edinburgh College of Art (ECA). Contributors present their research as part of a discussion chaired by writer and curator, Jenny Brownrigg. The event forms part of van der Lingen and Walsh’s micro residency at ECA School of Art, 1-26 August. Tickets available via eventbrite.
