This paper explores a recent installation of the Trans Memory Archive, a photographic archive generated by a collective of Argentine trans women who amassed 6,000 personal photographs and ephemera dating from around 1930 to 2000. Rizki analyses the stakes of the exhibition, which took place in a former concentration camp in Buenos Aires, while also considering the affective and material dimensions of this large-scale archival project to track the relationships between visuality, dictatorship, and trans subjectivity in Argentina.
