Archives, collections, data storage and "The Eternal Archives“. Discussions, questions and answers about the areas: Why, by whom, and in what interest is collected? Who influences what is archived? Can collections have an impact on our lives and impact in the future? Is there room for self-determined living in a time when data mining is going on at a gigantic rate, every point on earth is being monitored and all the personal information collected is potentially capitalizable? The video examines the extent to which institutionalized collections influence the public and the relevance of individual collections. What role or function can an independent, personal project like "The Eternal Archives“ have - in which context is it to be seen?
