How to collaborate with the project:
The Buenos Aires Audiovisual Archive invites every person or institution that owns material on Argentinean writers or theater personalities, in audio or audiovisual format, to contact by phone or e-mail.
The Archive also signs exchange agreements, with national or international related institutions which are focused in the preservation, conservation, publishing and investigation of audiovisual materials, by making donations, exchanges and projects.
WRITERS IN VYNIL
Buenos Aires Audiovisual Archive presents the exhibition “Writers in Vynyl. Argentinean Authors in his own voices”.
The exhibition is based on the phonographic registries of Raúl González Tuñón, Jorge Luis Borges, Oliverio Girondo, Julio Cortázar, Beatriz Guido and Leopoldo Marechal, recorded during the sixties by AMB, a producer company created by the poet and bookseller Héctor Yánover.
The presentation includes a history that starts at the beginning of the 20th century when in several countries people began to preserve the recordings of the voices of writers reading their works.
The exhibition is supported by UNESCO, that has considered it in the frame of the Literature and Culture Memory Preservation, and then, of the Human Intangible Heritage.
On these goals is based the work of the Buenos Aires Audiovisual Archive of the Centro Cultural Recoleta, which this time invites us to listen to those voices that time has kept closed in vynil disks.
