On November 9, 1989, the East Berlin's Communist Party announced that citizens of the GDR were free to cross the country’s borders, leading to speculations of a “world without borders.” Yet, as Elisabeth Vallet argues, a renewed emphasis on wall-building since this epoch-marking event has become a “global phenomenon.”[1] As this trend is gaining new momentum with the recent electoral victories of nationalist populists across Europe, in Israel and in Trump’s United States, borders are fortified and walls built to “protect” polities or to keep out refugees and migrants.

Archival practices in the 20th and early-21st century have been understood in a variety of ways. For some, “artists started to rely on the topos of the archive to express their unease about canonic systems for the production of knowledge” (Giannachi, 2016: 131). For others, a reviewing of the archive as a power structure and the blind spots, or silences, it produced was in order (Michel-Rolph Trouillot, 1995: 53). For others still, this ‘archival turn’ grew out of a fascination with historiography and with memory (Spieker, 2008: 26), characteristic of postmodern societies. Two main theoretical frameworks have been consistently called forth in contemporary studies of the archive.
