OCCAS scholar Thordis Arrhenius gives a keynote lecture at the conference Documentary Remains at GSAPP, Columbia University, November 14th 2013. Arranged by Mark Wasuita, the conference looks at 20th century exhibitions and exhibition research. Using archives, records, documents and remains as its points of departure, the conference addresses the apparent imbalance between the centrality claimed for exhibitions in contemporary scholarship and the fugitive character of these events. Arrhenius’ lecture is entitled “Illusion and Reality; Asplund 1917 and 1972”.
