Archive is a platform for cultural research and debate. Archive is engaged in a wide range of activities including publishing and exhibition making. Archive Books produces readers, monographs and artists’ books as well as journals focusing on contemporary cultural production and reception. Located in Berlin, Archive Kabinett is both a library/bookshop showcasing a selected range of printed matters, and simultaneously a space for lectures, screenings and exhibitions.
Archive Journal is a biannual cross-disciplinary journal. As its name suggests, Archive Journal is primarily concerned with the notion of documentation but also with contemporary uses of translation and recirculation.
Archive Appendix is the design department that brings a conceptual approach to the relation between text and image.
MER. Paper Kunsthalle
Established in 2005 as an independent publishing house looking into the book medium as a place to exhibit art. Since their incipience, art books often developed as rigid catalogues or aide-mémoires. They were seldom considered as genuine spaces to exhibit living art. However, from Dada onwards artists have always thought of books as exhibiting spaces.
