Mondotheque is a platform for experiments with the legacy of the universalist and documentalist Paul Otlet such as drawings, images, systems, ideas.

The project is named after La Mondothèque, Otlet’s 1934 design for an imaginary device, a research machine that could be at the same time archive, instrument, desk, catalog and broadcasting station.

Mondothèque is inspired by the obstinate spirit of Paul Otlet, and wants to look at the way knowledge is managed and distributed today in a way that allows us to invent other futures and different narrations of the past.
