This anthology investigates the turn in art not only towards archives and histories, the relics of modernities past, but toward the phenomena, in themselves, of haunting and the activation of memory. It looks at a wide array of artistic relationships to memory association, repetition and reappearance, as well as forms of active forgetting. Its discussions encompass artworks from the late 1940s onward, ranging from reperformances such as Marina Abramovic's Seven Easy Pieces (embodied resurrections of decades-removed performance pieces by her contemporaries) to the inanimate trace of memory Robert Morris assigns to his free-form felt pieces, which forget in their present configurations their previous slides and falls.
