Historical Records

Vinyl records, 2005–Ongoing

Historical Records is a collection of commercially produced vinyl records that documents recorded political events of the twentieth century. The collection contains over 700 LP’s of speeches and interviews of those who were in power, others who objected to this power, of war and peace agreements, human rights struggles, and other radio broadcasts of the events that shaped history from the invention of the phonograph to the fall of the Berlin wall. The project examines how recorded political events turned into a commodity, and what role sound documentation has in the interplay between personal and collective/national memory.
