Points up how knowledge about archives can be used by artists to help ensure their future visibility, and sets forth issues in the "making of art history." Focuses on the variety of what can get lost from the records: a portion of a famous artist's life or work; the historical/critical significance of the artist, once "in favor," but since neglected; the life and work of the isolated artist, the artist with several careers, the non-traditional artist.
