For the past twenty-five years, the founder of the Prelinger Archives has amassed film material that is generally ignored by traditional archives, resulting in a collection that prioritizes access and reuse as methods of preservation. Focusing on films on human perception, speech and sound recording and playback, Prelinger’s talk contextualises the history of the collection and looks at the future of archives and the possible end of archival institutions.
