No archive without outside

«(…)the archive takes place  at the place of originary and structural breakdown of the said memory.

There is no archive without a place of consignation, without a technique of repetition, and without a certain exteriority. No archive without outside.»

 

[DERRIDA, Jacques, Archive Fever A Freudian Impression, Chicago Press, 1996, p.11]
