Institutions

I have some questions and observations about institutions that are emerging from all of the time I have spent dealing with my own grief whilst mining Arnolfini’s archives.


Who are institutions?


How can institutions remember where they are from?

How can institutions remember a long and complicated life?

How can institutions reconcile with difficult parts of their past?


What has changed you?

What are your legacies?


Institutions have insides and outsides.

Institutions are communities

Over time institutions change beyond all recognition

People move on. People die.

There is such a thing as institutional amnesia


How can you piece together a life story for something or someone that no longer exists?

How can you come to terms with a future you won’t see?
