Mnemoscape is a research platform, online magazine and curatorial project dedicated to contemporary art practices and visual culture exploring issues of memory, history and the archival impulse.
Mnemoscape was funded in April 2013 by Elisa Adami and Alessandra Ferrini. During its first year of activity, it has functioned as an online research platform, operating from this web-blog (www.mnemoscape.wordpress.com). This first phase culminated in the organisation of two events, Autobiography and the Archive, a film screening at the Whitechapel Gallery and Archives for the Future, a conference that took place at the University of Westminster (both in London and supported by the International Association for Visual Culture).
Mnemoscape Magazine is the second phase of the project. A biannual, online magazine, it will be committed to foster theoretical and practical research, with a curatorial ethos, aiming at facilitating the production and the dissemination of art projects. It was launched on the 15th of September 2014 with the publication of the new website and the release of Issue#1 “The Anarchival Impulse”.
