Tempor(e)alities and Archive-Textures of Media-Connected Memory

WithWolfgang Ernst

This chapter sets out how such an inquiry demands sound technological knowledge on the one hand, and media philosophical curiosity on the other to create epistemological sparks out of such close reading and guiding theoretical hypotheses against which the evidence is tested.
