The Archive

for individual makers, performers and art institutions

PRIVATE or COMPANY
The first group of users are the individual artists who can manage their private archive in a closed and secure environment. The user is the source, owner and administrator of one's own uploaded data.

The artist / designer as 'source' can offer access to institutional archives for research and possible choice to include work and documents in their archive. In that case, the institutional archive adds its own academically reliable descriptions.

Although the 'private' bottom-up structure is the principle of this archive, it is also built for companies.
In that case, the company or producer is the owner and manager of the data and designates the individual registrars and curators who perform the archive management.

Individual members can start a working group or ad hoc production by using the project platform.
