The following article aims to address concepts related to archives and reflect on the organization and systematization of information.
One of the distinctiveness of the contemporary archive is its versatility, it stores analog and digital content such as photos, movies, audio, etc.
This comprehensive study aims to question the archival processes throughout time, it’s relation with memory and the relevance of photography as an atmosphere that enables recollections.
In the words of Micheal Foucalt (1986), archives are an attempt to store everything, bringing into time and space the notion of knowledge.
To understand what archive means within the context of our present lives, Paulo Bernardino Bastos (2006) advocates that along with the rise of digital technologies, there are increasingly more projects online that strive to transform the “archival sites”, this transformation is motivated by contemporary society’s velocity of visual consumption of images.
With technological development, archives suffered many changes and as a consequence, drastically altered the way information is accessed and created, the technological applications we use on daily basis, whether it be by private or public institutions, have a great influence in document management archives.
