Postcapital Archive (1989-2001). Borders / Library (2006-2009)

Installation: wooden tower, collages, multimedia archive, computer stations. Acknowledgements: Württembergisher Kunstverein Stuttgart; La Virreina, Barcelona; Hangar, Barcelona

Postcapital Archive (1989–2001) is a multimedia installation that both presents and provides access to his "Postcapital Archive” –over 250,000 text, video, and audio documents compiled by the artist from the Internet over the past ten years. The chronological parameters of the archive are the fall of the Berlin Wall and the attacks on September 11. Andújar’s methodology for this investigation is not the archive per se but active participation in and interaction with it. Hence the wooden tower in the installation is inaccessible – there is no single, overarching view of knowledge – and visitors are invited to produce their own sets of knowledge by selectively navigating the archive as well as contributing to it.
