Archives provide an opportunity to stop time and step out of it. We can move away from the present, and from there compare it with utopias of the past. The site of an archive is more than a shelter or a repository. Archives can start moving again, especially if they otherwise run the risk of disintegrating. They can make new connections that animate them. They can become sites of production. They deconstruct time and space and have the potential to narrate the world anew – to those who address them, who must then pass the story on.
