EDITORIAL

            Philippe Artières devotes his work in large part to the contemporary history of writing—to our graphic culture, from neon signs to tattooing.  He is never far removed from fiction authors and artists, which also must contribute to making his work inventive.
            He goes back over for us the process by which archives have become social objects, reexamining the very fuzzy definition of these remains of individual and collective life, how they are classified and how their status changes in relation to increasing demands involving a “right of remembrance.”
