This reading explored the practitioner Freud and his opinions on archives and the way a performance is expressed within an archive. I found this reading hard to follow and struggled to find its meaning within the module. From the reading Freud has explored that archives are made possible by death and destruction, as an artist passes away their work becomes even more important in the creative industry. This is because with their absence they are no longer available to answer questions regarding their work and so the only things left to the world is what has been archived.
