Like most of Wolfgang Ernst’s work, Das Rumoren der Archiv explored the concept of archival and media theory from a current cultural digital context. Ernst challenges the traditional perspective of the cultural heritage institution and how it relied on media for creating, storing and disseminating digital information. Archives have a place in a digital society, and the archivist’s role will be more increasingly vital in the future. As Ernst points out, his work will show a way out of the archive, away from the notion that the era of archive is coming to an end.

Here is the long-awaited English translation of this seminal work exploring cultural heritage before the archives, throughout history, and from today into the future.

Ernst work emphasized a need to recognize media as a method for capturing and preserving our collective cultural identity. It is vital that archivists promoted a greater awareness of how media technology augmented the creation, management, and dissemination of digital content.

Review:

The publisher and the translator are to be credited with bringing Ernst’s work to Anglophone attention. . . . In short: if you found Foucault and co. worth reading, you’ll enjoy this. (Archives and Records: The Journal of the Archives and Records Association)
