Abstract/Summary

This paper focuses on two artistic research projects created in collaboration with museums in Reading, UK; the hybrid-media installation The First World War in Biscuits (2014), shown in a ‘white cube’ gallery in Reading Museum and the online resource War Child: Meditating on an Archive (2016): www.war-child-archive.com. The paper analyses approaches taken during the projects’ development to matters of spatial and digital curation. It considers how they engaged with the idea of collaboratively-produced ‘histories from below’ and with the cultural heritage sector priority of discoverability. It concludes by noting some emerging questions connected with the projects’ longer-term physical and virtual materialisation.
