Abstract: The concept of the archive is in transformation, which confronts us with questions like how do we, as cultural institutions, see the role of our archive, what should it represent and how should they accordingly be structured. Our understanding of past, present and future is also closely linked to the way we organize and process information with electronic media and how we retrieve knowledge and meaning out of these processes. Archives are becoming complex interconnected databases and no longer just contain our past for inspection by historians and other researchers. Archives have become crucial in how the past and present are created and reflected upon. What does all  this mean for our institutional archives, what could be the function and meaning of contemporary archives and what is our vision on archives in relation to our institutions and what we practice in them?
