The website serves multiple purposes and is a work in progress. It is a database providing visitors of the exhibition Territory as Palimpsest: The Legacy of André Corboz with access to additional documents, such as audio testimonials collected from former colleagues, students and collaborators of Corboz. Offering a window into archival collections based in Mendrisio, the website serves as a window for future research. It is organized along a chronological axis and based on biographical and bibliographical data. Drawing from the wealth of textual and visual sources of his estate, various facets and themes of Corboz’s work are highlighted. While chronicling the form of knowledge production that was characteristic for this autodidact, the website also shows how Corboz designed and implemented his research projects and publications over time.
