At that time such a thing could not take place in France were people could still be persecuted for certain deeds during the rising and even having lots of protest documentation could make one a suspect. The IISG had been collecting historical documents from and about revolutionary, workers and social movement since a Dutch initiative as a reaction on the take over of power by the Nazis in Germany and Austria and the endangered socialist archives.
There were also many people related in some way to the Institute who did the same thing on their own initiative. From July onward with the movement going down several people in France feared strong repression and were looking for a safe place to store documentation they had gathered and donated it to the IISG.
All this came together and already in the summer of a big collection of all kind of documents had been established in Amsterdam. The most primary documents were the leaflets and handouts of thousands of different initiatives, often duplicated, or printed in a simple way.
Next came the posters and handwritten manifestos of all kind of sizes and with a great variety of subjects.
Comments, proposals, manifestos, programs and the like in the form of brochures pamphlets flooded the bookshops and news stalls, were handed out, or sold on the streets. Of course the movement also reflected on existing news media that often published special editions or issues.
Already during the first month books started to come out, documenting specific events, discussing or reflecting. All this material had to be ordered in some way to show it and make it understandable.
This formed the basis for the catalogue that showed also leaflets, handwritten manifestos and posters, all translated into Dutch. The catalogue was a low budget production, so only pure black and white reproduction could be afforded at that time even making rasters pictures would have been too expensive; difficult to understand for new generation working with graphic computer systems.
Still when I leaf through the catalogue now in it breathes a graphic atmosphere that relates well with the spirit of the 68 movement.
There were film showings with life translations during the exhibition. The catalogue had special sections on movies and gramophone record documents and an international documentation of the 68 movement in the world of art.
Maybe here should also be noted that the Stedelijk Museum direction was not all that happy about this initiative. They somewhat feared its revolutionary impact, so when we proposed to hang the reprints of some May 68 posters, like the one with the clubbing CRS riot policeman, on the official advertisement boards of the museum had, this was refused.
It took a decade or so before all the simple handwritten and badly duplicated documents were forgotten and only the nice and artistic looking documents could get popular with the curators and were often selected in museum exhibitions as emblems of Mai After 25 years the French archival institutions had catched up and even did better than us foreign pioneering documentarists.
The National Library of France undertook a serious project to catalogue all the leaflets they had been able to put their hands on and even initiated a microfilmed edition that has preserved all together A technocrat policy was pursued, by a center-right majority government, to modernize France, an imperial power that had just lost its colonies and still was a half agricultural, half industrial country.
While major efforts were made to push a new high tech industry that would provide both cheap energy and military nuclear power, changes in other domains lacked behind.Call Number /Title Summary Report as Borrower October 1, to December 31, Die Römische Kirche Und Ihr Einfluss Auf Disciplin Und Dogma in Den Ersten Drei Jahrhunderten Hagemann, H.

In her essay, Jennifer Rondeau problematizes the discourse-practice binary formulated by Michel de Certeau in The Writing of History15 by showing that both terms are characterized by an instability that renders the binary itself problematic as a critical tool. Ludwig Klages’ famous essay from is here translated into Danish for the first time.
According to Klages, the planet-wide destruction of nature is a disastrous outcome of a runaway mad civilisation focused on progress.
