The Enthusiasts Archive was the result of extensive research amongst the remnants of amateur film clubs in Poland under socialism. It was a critical archive of beautiful amateur films found, restored and made available. It was online from 2006 - 2013 hosted by Arteleku in San Sebastian, unfortunately due to Spanish 'austerity' funding cuts Arteleku was disaggregated, and in the process many films, the archives structure and meta-data were lost. A tragedy.

The good news is, the emerging Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw has aquired the archive as part of its permanent collection, we are in the process of rethinking and remaking the Enthusiasts Archive.

Here I'm beginning to reimagine the archives architecture....
