Digital materials are accepted, and preferred. Please include as much information as possible per file. This metadata is particularly important for future searchability.

Would you like to share a memory, anecdote or personal story with us? You can find more information here.

We kindly ask that you digitize physical material as much as possible, and that you send the scanned or photographed material via WeTransfer to archief@sonsbeek.org.

If it is not possible to send the material digitally—for example, because you have a large amount of physical material—contact us at the above email address with the subject line ‘physical archive material’. In your email, we would like to receive as much information as possible about, and photographs of, the material in question, in order to get an idea about:

  • the amount of materials
  • the types of materials (listed below)
  • the sonsbeek edition(s) it relates to, and where possible stating the name(s) of the artist(s), title(s) of the artwork(s), and any related dates (for example, the date on which the photograph was taken, when the article it appeared in was published, etc.)

We will then make an appointment as soon as possible to see the material and assess whether it is possible to digitize it. Even if you are not sure that your material is interesting enough, please just send us an email!
