PRE: Preserve, Research, Educate
Archivorum will support 3 successful postgraduates with its biennial grant program, producing our first trial of critical archive publications - an ode on the work produced by said artists, as well as further research.
Our biennial grant program intends to support critical research and diffusion through a series of publications on selected artists’ archives and exhibitions.
Alongside this initiative, Archivorum will create strong collaborations programs with local and international museums, universities, public institutions, other foundations, public archives, libraries and other charitable institutions to sustain partnerships based in Europe and the rest of the world.
The Foundation will also encourage community engagement with local neighbours to stimulate them to participate in the activities promoted and to the bespoke program for interested users and visitors.
Archivorum is a new organisation that will open from 2022 and it will be based in Pankow, East Berlin, Germany.
Its focus will be on three main areas: library & archive, a space for residencies & public events as well as an educational & research space.
What distinguishes Archivorum from other art foundations/organisations is the commitment to spread archives as social resources of civil progress, as well as cultural growth.
Archivorum is a mental and geographical journey through the world of artists' archives, based on our innovative PRE philosophy:
Preserve: preserve artists' work as intact as possible.
Research: create a platform to research.
Educate: give access to the public & spread knowledge.
