Abstract:The articles in this special edition parallel, and in instances are extensions of, the papers, panel discussions and artists' presentations comprising the VIADUCT 2015 platform, hosted by the Visual Identities in Art and Design Research Centre (VIAD), University of Johannesburg, 18-20 March 2015. Presenters are engaged with the complexities of contemporary archival practices, and how these play out using lens-based and new media technologies (hereafter termed 'photographies'). In this edition, authors consider contemporary possibilities for, and practices of, addressing (primarily visual) archives; how these possibilities might impact on how archives are collated, disseminated, accessed and received; and what implications they may have for understanding the functions, meanings and significance of archives in diverse contexts. Contributions: Editorial: archival addresses: photographies, practices, positionalities (Leora Farber); Hauntology, archivy and banditry: an engagement with Derrida and Zapiro (Verne Harris); Unseaming images: the limits and possibilities for reconfiguring albums of complicity (Heidi Grunebaum); Being called to 'By the Rivers of Birminam': the relational choreography of white looking (Shona Hunter); '...?and death I think is no parenthesis': the aged, the ill and the dying in contemporary photographic practice (Ruth Rosengarten); 'Empathic unsettlement' in the field of vision: Jo Ractliffe's Vlakplaas in photographs and video (Yvette Greslé); Beyond a clinical narrative: casebook photographs from the Grahamstown Lunatic Asylum, c. 1890s (Rory du Plessis); Photographing a South African form of sudden death (James Sey); A poetics of redemption: Keith Dietrich's reinvention of the colonial archive (Lize van Robbroeck); Between the open and the hidden: clothing, segregation, and the feminine counter-archive in the photographs of Gordon Parks (Kimberly Lamm); Rhodes Must Fall: archives and counter-archives (Cynthia Kros); Autoethnographic interventions and 'intimate exposures' in Ricardo Rangel's Portuguese Mozambique (Pamila Gupta).
