Abstract [en]

Heritage institutions are contributing to the self-fashioning of a nation, but can also have an active part in creating shared memories of a European past. By creating a sense of (un)belonging, heritage practice can include or exclude minorities from the „imagined community“ of the nation. While attempts have been made to include migrant experiences into museums and exhibitions, film archives have to face the challenge of dealing with archival footage in which migrant experiences are framed through a perspective which shows migration as a problem for society rather than an asset. How do film archives work to overcome these challenges? How do they navigate between the national and transnational, between regional and global memories? Drawing on current examples of creating online access for digitized audiovisual heritage, this paper looks at the work by the British Film Institute and the Swedish Film Institute as well as at the content aggregator Europeana. It will examine the politics of curating and the use of metadata for the creation of a common European heritage. Overall, this paper sets out to rethink the relation between memory and the digital archive in the creation of polyvocal narratives of the past.
