Art from bureaucracy and archives on display

Recently I started to be interested in how archival materials can be displayed in an attractive and intelligent way.
It is the researcher who wants to display artistically, or the artist who is fascinated by the scientificity and bureaucracy of the researcher?
This post will be made out of titles of books/ exhibitions/ artists concerned with these issues:
Start with 1
1. an article about an exhibition of the Bauhaus Archive in Germany


2. Forging Folklore, Disrupting Archives - an exhibition plus events organised 15 May-15 July 2014 in Goldsmiths College, Constance Howard Gallery with the special contribution of materials from the Special Collections, Goldsmiths.

3. A very good book on art practices and archives: - Sven Spieker (ed.), 2008. The Big Archive: Art from Bureaucracy. Cambridge&London: The MIT Press. The articles included were written by: Freud, Ducham, Breton, Corbusier, Lissitzky, Eisenstein, Susan Hiller, Michael Fehr, Andreea Fraser, Sophie Calle. Introduction: Ilya Kabakov - Sixteen Ropes.
4. Archive as Strategy
