Introduction
Sabine Brantl, Curator Archive at Haus der Kunst
Hubert Kretschmer, Archive Artist Publications

From October 2018 to June 2019, the Archive Artist Publications will be the “archive in residence" in Haus der Kunst’s Archive Gallery. The exhibition marks the beginning of a series of presentations that exhibit independent archives and explore issues concerning the relationship between archive, history and its representation.

Since 1980, the publisher, artist and art educator Hubert Kretschmer has been collecting and archiving artist publications. His archive on Munich’s Türkenstraße now contains more than 50,000 items of various media by artists from 86 countries. Thus, the archive makes a decisive contribution to drawing attention to the cultural-historical value of these productions and as academic material. The exhibition is curated by Sabine Brantl.
