An archive’s tasks have long ceased to consist solely of taking over documents worthy of archiving, making them accessible according to professional criteria, processing them for use and conserving them. Archives no longer want to make archival materials available only in user rooms, but also to bring them to the general public through exhibitions. However, this raises various questions: How can an archive make its “treasures” accessible to the public and at the same time physically protect them? How can exhibitions consisting exclusively of documents be made exciting? The guests at the round table will explore this tension together with the audience.
