Time travels in archaeology: between Hollywood films and historical re-enactment?
2013 (English)In: AP: Online Journal in Public Archaeology, ISSN 2171-6315, Vol. 3, 110-130 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
One of the recently most popular ways of experiencing the past is time travelling. It is an experience and social practice in the present that evokes a past (or future) reality’ (Holtorf 2009: 33). In this article, I mainly discuss the political aspect of time travelling. I focus on cinema as a medium which closely links archaeology with the time travel phenomenon. Two Oscars galas, of 2010 and 2012, are scrutinised as case studies. The text is a political intervention to start dreaming dangerously, to contribute as an archaeologist to the critique of the utopia of capitalism (see also Hernando 2005: 75).
