Archive Analogue Dialogue 2020 Ciar O'Mahony and Isabella Waite Analogue Dialogue. Cubitt Archive Placement x Goldsmiths MA Curating. 2020. At the beginning of 2020, the two of us received the Cubitt Archive Research Placement,which gives curators the opportunity to activate the Cubitt Artists’ archive. Our originalproposal aimed to create an in-person dialogue between artists and the local Cubittcommunity in order to highlight the role and importance of collective discourse within Cubitt'shistory. We were drawn to this topic as shared governance and clear communication areessential characteristics of artist groups with long term goals and are oftenunderemphasised when discussing their formation, success, and longevity.However, fast forward a few months and we were in the midst of a global health crisis.Gathering individuals into an intimate space was no longer an option and so we had tore-think our approach to facilitating a dialogue. After considering alternative options to realiseour original intentions, we decided to continue this project via mail correspondence whichwould then be collected and published as a zine. Our interest in non-digital correspondence is intended to capture the more fleeting moments,conversations, and interactions between people which the archive may not as yet contain.We believe these smaller moments can often be as important to Cubitt’s identity as theexhibitions, publications, and professional opportunities it has generated. By publishing thereplies and media we receive from participants as a zine, we will be acknowledging thesecrucial, if ephemeral, exchanges, and ensuring that they too are recorded. We see this as away to begin instantiating an archived portion of Cubitt Artists' history and incorporating itinto the archive along with its other artefacts. Interviews include:Nicky Hoberman, Helen Ireland, Andrew Carpenter, Amal Khalaf, PollyStaple and Charlene Sandy.
