a film by Nina Höchtl and Julia Wieger
Secretariat for Ghosts, Archival Politics and Gaps
HAUNTINGS IN THE ARCHIVE! is an official selection of the Women’s Voices Now 5th Annual Film Festival, streaming online from March 8th – April 8th, 2018. This unique film festival amplifies women’s voices and sheds a light on women’s rights issues.
HAUNTINGS IN THE ARCHIVE! reflects on the hi/herstory/ies of the Austrian Association of Women Artists (VBKÖ) through its century-old archive of letters, photos, catalogs, and thousands of other documents. The Secretariat for Ghosts, Archival Politics and Gaps (SKGAL) assembles the material to conjure up the specters of the multiple lives of the VBKÖ that share the scene in the film: Ghosts of National Socialism encounter colonial fantasies, as well as old and new feminist agencies.
