Archive

The archive collects and preserves material (folders, posters, files, models etc.) on the history of the Bundeskunsthalle, its events and exhibitions. It is open to the public and may be used for scientific research. The archive’s thematic focus also includes the institution’s eventful prehistory. In addition, an extensive video collection of external and in-house productions is also collected. Available are artists’ film portraits, film documentaries on exhibitions and much more.

The separate picture archive documents the institutions’ history through its extensive photograph collection. Collected are photographs, diapositives, negatives, and digital media. Each exhibition is documented by footage of the exhibition setup, opening, press conference, and exhibition scenes (hanging, exhibition architecture, etc.). Additionally documented are important incidences and public figures, significant to the Bundeskunsthalle’s history.

Archive and picture library are open to the public. Advance notice is requested.
