Abstract: This article reflects on the central role of the archive in our culture and shows how the tension between privatization and the public domain on the internet reveals the new dynamics that require us to redefine the role of museums and art centers. This rethinking of the function of the museum in our society, brought about in part by the crisis of metanarratives that support it, also entails establishing a new relation with the collection, which, having to display the singularity of the objects and of the artistic practices -with their consequent dematerialization and deobjectivization beginning at the end of the nineteen-sixties with the avant-garde-, has become an archive through which its users may circulate and construct multiple narratives.
