This archive is for ever under construction and thus always incomplete.

The projects, study groups, classes, seminars, lectures, travels, reviews, events and other happenings that occured during the DAI's extraordinary itinerary through time and places are archived here. Depot begins around 2003 and ends in August 2020 (it does not yet cover the running program (2020-2021).

You are most welcome to scroll backward in time from this page onward.

For alternative ways of finding access to the DAI's larger body of work go to BULLETIN or to SEARCH.

Please note that the public symposia and conferences that we present under the umbrella of "Roaming Assembly" have not been archived here, under Depot, but under Roaming Assembly or watch their video-registrations at Video Archive

Publications, Thesis Abstracts and bio's of Alumni and Tutors are also not archived under Depot. 

Should you, alumnus, (former) (guest) tutor or otherwise stakeholder in a DAI-project or event of the past, be in the possesion of any (textual, visual or aural) materials that could help us document "all things DAI", you are most welcome to contact Gabriëlle Schleijpen.
