ABOUT THE LIBRARY
The library has over 130 thousand titles, including books, exhibition and collection catalogues, national and international periodicals, videos, CDs and DVDs. This collection is particularly well endowed with artists books and other publications on Minimal Art, Conceptual Art and Fluxus. Besides publications, it includes invitations, posters and special productions such as multiples and editions.
Other special resources include the museum’s collection and exhibitions’ archive since 1936. The library strives to keep track of current developments in contemporary art though new acquisitions, gifts and exchanges with other museums. In exceptional cases, collections from external organizations find a place within that of the library.
ARCHIVE AND LIBRARY CATALOGUE
The exhibition and museum archives form an integral part of the library’s collection. You can consult files for information on the history of the museum, its exhibitions and art collection.
The library holds its own exhibitions in the library, that change every two months. These are programmed in collaboration with artists, collectors, publishers and art institutions. The exhibits include works on paper, bibliophilic editions and artists’ books, and are selected from a different perspective every time.
