'Life is lived forward, but it is understood backward' - Soren Kierkegaard

Are memories like movies? Can they be recorded? Can you capture their yearning, their dread, their jubilation?

If your mind had a surveillance camera trained on your streams of consciousness, the tape might show something like the ACMI Collection's Remembrance works. Remembrance + the Moving Image brings together arresting works from prominent and emerging artists from Australia and abroad - jostling together the present, future and past to offer new understandings of ourselves and the world we live in.

The Remembrance catalogue is the first in the ACMI Collections series - rather than a traditional catalogue it is more of an initial meditation on the treasures of the collection.
