Performing the Digital Archive: Remediation, Emulation, Recreation

Abstract (in English): 

The aim of ‘PO.EX '70-80: A Digital Archive of Portuguese Experimental Literature’ ( is to represent the intermedia and performative textuality of a large corpus of experimental works and practices in an electronic database, including some early instances of digital literature. This paper shows how the performativity of digital archiving and recoding is explored through the remediation, emulation and recreation of works in the PO.EX archive. Preservation, classification and networked distribution are also discussed as editorial and representational problems within the current database aesthetics in knowledge production. (Project reference: PTDC/CLE-LLI/098270/2008).
