Q&A with Julia Wieger
HAUNTINGS IN THE ARCHIVE! reflects on the history/ies of the Austrian Association of Women Artists (the VBKÖ) through its archive of letters, photos, catalogues and administrative documents. The Secretariat for Ghosts, Archival Politics and Gaps assembles the material to conjure up the spectres of the multiple lives of the VBKÖ that was founded more than a hundred years ago. In the film, the ghosts of National Socialism encounter colonial fantasies and share the scene with old and new feminist agencies.
