Museum of Ferdinando Cospi, Bologna, 1677


  • »For my studio organization one can talk about a whole new world (studio) order. We talk about the messy time, BA and the now time, AA - After Archiv. Filling an archive is very time consuming. But for us here in the studio, we're very happy with the effort invested, as archiv is so very practical and also fun to work with.«

    Kirstine Roepstorff

  • »Füttern, suchen, finden und bei Bedarf teilen. Ein digitales Werkverzeichnis, so wie ich es mit archiv gefunden habe, schwebte mir schon seit geraumer Zeit vor. Das erspart eine Menge Arbeit, schafft einen guten Überblick und ist von überall her zugänglich.«

    Thomas Florschuetz

frequently asked questions

  • is there a minimum contract duration?

    no. archiv plans are month-to-month and you can cancel your contract at any time.

    what happens to my data if i cancel?

    if you cancel your account for any reason, your data will be exported to you via .csv format (Microsoft Excel), and deleted from our server. if you wish to access and view your archiv database, but not add to it, your account can be set to 'inactive'. inactive accounts require an annual hosting fee of 60€ (+ V.A.T.).

  • where is my data? is it safe and secure?

    your data is stored and backed up daily on a dedicated server hosted by our trusted german ISP (internet service provider). if you would prefer an 'in house' server solution for your archiv data, or if you require ssl-ecryption, we provide full service and support in configuring a custom installation suited to your needs.
