What happens when a curatorial investigation produces a selection of artists whose purpose is to exhibit part of their productions in an online archive? What happens if the tool used covers only a few aspects of what it teaches? What provokes the presence of bodies, voices and projections instead of works?

A spoken archive. With or without you is the presentation of the ten new artists integrated by Veronica Valentini into the Archive of Creators of Matadero Madrid. It proposes the combination of the multiple forms of presence (physical, mental and technological) in dialogue with the practice of the archive examining the ontological relations between, on one hand, documents, images and videos, as well as the notions of the body and, on the other hand, the presence as a live event and the presentation encounter as an (oral) exposure of the archive.
