As part of the Footnoting the Archive project and in partnership with the public engagement programme at CCA, MAP presents a series of audio recordings of past MAP contributions, voiced by their authors and installed at a listening station in the CCA foyer and Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop.
Following the recent digitisation of its printed magazine, eleven years of MAP content is now freely available online. Footnoting the Archive aims to present this archive as an accessible and active resource. The Voicing the Archive installation at CCA presents content from the MAP archive in a different context, allowing the possibility to reach and engage with new audiences. Through this particular strand of programming, MAP guest editors Suzanne van der Lingen and Claire Walsh worked with CCA’s Public Engagement Curator, Viviana Checchia, to provide access to elements of its archive for visually impaired visitors at CCA and Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop.
Visitors using the tables and seating in the foyer have the option of listening to the MAP recordings and browsing a collection of MAP magazines. Contributors include: Stephanie Mann, Mason Leaver-Yap, Kate Zambreno, Joanna Peace, Virginia Hutchison, Mick Peter and Neil Cooper (with Muscles of Joy). The installation also features a table-top print designed by Osasto.
