Kunsthalle Basel’s photographic archive has been documenting its exhibition activities for around 100 years. And although this institution, which was established in 1872, focuses on showing contemporary art, this project, which is largely financed by third-party sponsorship, raises the public’s awareness of historically valuable source material. The preservation, restoration, digitization and publication of the photographic archive take place in cooperation with the University of Basel’s Digital Humanities Lab. Another project that enjoys third-party funding, “Archives on the move”, explores how the digital content of cultural collections can be searched, visualized and communicated on one platform. An exhibition in fall 2017 first attracted the attention of a wider audience to the photographic archive.
