In ihrem Vortrag wird Dantas das Bild und die materielle Existenz von Staub als Signifikant, Index und Trope innerhalb des Archivs, der Geschichte und der Kunst ansprechen. Ihre Diskussion wird versuchen, Einblicke in unsere Anziehungskraft auf dieses pudrige Substrat der Zeit zu geben und eine Reihe von Gesprächsfiguren hervorzurufen.
