Borrowed Faces: The Digital Archive

Fehras Publishing Practices try to understand publishing practices in their relation to the political and cultural realm. Therefore the observation of archiving practices, cataloging systems, and their political dimension become a part of this investigation.

In the wake of the digitization of archives and libraries, the collective looks into new tendencies of how institutions and universities make specific inventories accessible to research aims. This movement raises questions about the ownership of the archive and new ways of writing history.

In this regard, Fehras decided to open their archive and make it accessible digitally to the public. The digital archive presented as a part of this installation gathers the archive of Borrowed Faces, which Fehras are collecting and commenting on since 2018. The visitors are invited to browse various entities such as publishers, magazines, institutions, etc., and read commented documents. The digital archive also offers the possibility of exploring possible connections between these entities. These connections aim to graphically present the complexity of cultural production and the interrelation between politics, culture, and funding on a global level.

This digital archive and The research of Borrowed Faces is facilitated with the support from Berlin Artistic Research Grant Programme for 2020/21.

Cartography Research Web

In Culture Inventory Atlas, there are nearly 15.000 cultural entities and artefacts marked and classified in a digital cartographic database. We created a website with a search engine and filtered map by entity group, type and location. The user can rediscover cultural properties by examining its historical information and original location. Originated in the geographic region of the Middle East, Anatolia, and the Balkan, the aim is to create an international and open source cultural property database.
