Eds. Ana Catarina Pinho, Andrés Pachón Archivo Papers Journal, Vol.1, Issue 1, 2021
The inaugural volume of Archivo Papers Journal (APJ) began with the simple premise of reflecting on today's images and its discourses and processes of meaning construction, by delving into Barthes's theoretical contributions concerning images as myths and the normalisation of certain ideas. To this end, an interdisciplinary group of researchers and practitioners was challenged to reflect on the current dynamics established with the technical image and how it influences meaning construction, thus contributing with critical reflections raised from historical, anthropological, psychoanalytical, and artistic standpoints.
