Sample text

Nonetheless, we continue to give them shape, interpret them, and weave them into vari­ous narratives toward vari­ous ends. In this sense, these documents give words what we might think of as many potential afterlives. That recorded interviews potentially engender an afterlife of words first struck me when I was asked to reproduce copies of an interview made before an artist’s death to share with his family and a Dakar-­based radio show that wanted to render homage to the artist. Although the interview was not in the end broadcast, had it been aired, the artist’s words would have been available for appropriation or repetition in a variety of narratives, in­clud­ing representations of legacy, as discussed above.

This issue becomes all the more pronounced when we consider the great distances we travel to get to our research sites and to interview artists in person or the substantial resources we devote to forging and negotiating these relationships. 3 It is my hope that the theorization and analy­sis advanced here will prompt reflection about how the parameters, contents, and dynamics of interviews and narratives hinge on who and what are absent as much as on who and what are present. 1.

Before going on I need to acknowledge that I have presented only a partial picture. Sometimes artworks do engender prominent and widely acknowledged interpretations that are readily accessible to insiders and even outsiders.
