A genuine centre of memory for the Centre Pompidou, the Archives Unit is in charge of collecting, sorting, classifying, conserving and communicating documents produced by the institutions’ departments as part of their activities. The collection processed and managed by the unit is apublic archive (Heritage Code) and relates to the period from 1969 until today (as opposed to the collections managed by the Bibliothèque Kandinsky which hold artists’ private archives).

Consulting Documents

The system governing access to public archives is codified in Book II of the Heritage Code (chap. 3, articles L. 213-1 to L. 213-8). Law n° 2008-696 of 15 July 2008 introduced the principle of free access to public archives; however, documents which relate to protected interests or confidential matters can only be accessed once certain time periods have passed, which vary from 25 to 100 years depending on the nature of those interests.
It is also possible to consult documents which are not freely accessible. An exemption authorising consultation before the expiry of these time periods may be granted by the archive administration, after agreement from the authority from which the documents emanated, “where the interest in consulting these documents does not cause excessive impingement of the interests which the law intends to protect.” This exemption is granted by the Direction des Archives de France.
With regard to the selection of documents, the Archives Unit provides research tools for anyone who wishes to consult the archives produced by the Institution. In addition to inventory lists available online, the database may be examined at one of the IT points within the Archives Unit.
In the event of a specific request, the Archives Unit can also provide information by email.
A documentary archive is also available for consultation. It includes the following documents:
Activity reports (1973 until today);
Budgets and amendments (1973 until today);
Press reviews (1971 until today);
Press releases (1976 until today);
Internal newsletter (1993 until today);
Flash info (internal information) (1987 until today);
Catalogues of events (1975 until today);
