Among Ackbar Abbas' famous arguments has been one of a strange role of the archives in Hong Kong: the déjà disparu, or the 'feeling that what is new and unique about the situation is always already gone, and we are left holding a handful of cliché, or a cluster of memories of what has never been’. Abbas' work has drawn attention to a rather special role that the archives possess in Hong Kong: as evidence, then, of what may have been in the face of erasure. His more recent work has been on both the production of fakes and on fraudulent memory.
