Ex­plo­ring the com­plex re­la­tion­ship bet­ween ar­tis­tic pro­duc­tion and the ar­chives is one of the most fas­ci­na­ting re­search sub­jects among the goals of Luma Arles. “Im­pon­de­rable” is an extensive re­search project – cu­ra­ted by Tom Eccles and Bea­trix Ruf – that in­ves­ti­gates the per­so­nal col­lec­tion of Ame­ri­can ar­tist To­ny Ours­ler. More than 2,500 photographs, pu­bli­ca­tions and unique ob­jects, from the ear­ly 18th cen­tu­ry to the present, track a so­cial, spi­ri­tual and in­tel­lec­tual his­to­ry. The project was com­mis­sio­ned and pro­du­ced by Ma­ja Hoffmann's Luma Foun­da­tion for the Parc des Ate­liers in Arles.
