and how things were done badly or how things were done really

It can be anything, really. It can be medical equipment, it can be

It’s like ephemeral informatio­n, stuff that gives context to the

Material that is kind of gathered pertaining to a person or to a

It’s witness of tools and cultures

of people who lived before us in different ages and times, but an

The Tate archive is the national archive of British fine art

so we’re the world’s second largest art archive and we house 800

So we have around one million documents.

We’re digitising 52,000 items from the archives collection to make

to not only the general public in the UK but globally and this is

No longer does one have to necessaril­y visit an archive

although it can be important to do so as you can get a different

It’s not just all paper based, you know, there are artworks in it,

there’s kind of primary material that could otherwise be seen as

gives a bit of context to the amazing collection of British art

I created a project called the South London Black Music Archive

so we turned Peckham platform into an open archive where people

We had lots of records because I also had a record player and all

So I wanted to be able to make sure that there were different ways

and contribute to that archive so one of those devices was to have

People would send a text message with a story and we would add

Some of the values that I have seen through visiting various

The Tate archive is for anybody to come in and register and book

and those materials will be brought to the reading room where they
