The arrangement and description, re-housing, and partial digitization of up to 900 linear feet of the Harald Szeemann Papers, which comprise 3,000 artist files, over 200 project files, and 750 videos documenting the history of 20th-century art and visual culture.

This application seeks support from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to process the two largest and most significant series in the recently acquired Harald Szeemann Papers (circa 1880-2005). The Szeemann archive is one of the principal privately assembled collections related to 20th-century art and visual culture in the world, and his series of project files and artist files are the heart of the archive. The proposed project will arrange, preserve, describe, and partially digitize the project files and artist files, and make them freely accessible to scholars, researchers, curators, artists, and the interested public. Together these two series comprise 900 linear feet of extensive correspondence, notes, unique drawings, rare posters, video artworks, artists' books, limited-edition items by noted visual, literary, and performance artists, and extensive documentation of Szeemann's exhibitions and other projects, both realized and unrealized.
