Echoes of Experience

Valentina Rodríguez (CO/AT)

This project presents a digital open letter using Travelogues- and AKON-archives from the library’s digital collection. This work arises primarily from a sentimental relationship with the archive and personal experiences as a migrant. The starting point was the reconfiguration of the collected text to create a new metafictional archive that relates feelings of foreignness and exoticism associated with arriving in a new territory, and of course the stereotypes that this entails.
