. Archive

At the Women's Museum, there are currently three different archives - the actual museum's archive, the FemArchive and the Circulus Archive.

This contains extensive source material concerning the topic of Women in the Arts, History and Politics in the shape of documents, texts, books, catalogues, art magazines, posters, photos, and electronic media. So far, data concerning about 10,000 women has been covered and is available.
The archive is being re-structured currently and use is possible on a limited base only.

The FemArchive was founded in 1988 by the Bonn women's movement. Literature and other materials covering feminist issues were collected by individual women and have been made available here in a central place to the general female public. The FemArchive has been housed at the Women's Museum since 2002 and acts as library, archive, and documentation centre. As such it has available a wide range of books, magazines, brochures, video tapes, posters and scientific works. The emphasis is on the Bonn women's movement, women's history, lesbians, fascism / National Socialism, violence against women, women's health, studies of literature and language, novels, lyric poetry, and suspense stories.
