Library and Documentation Centre

This page gathers information on the collections and holdings, specialised in contemporary art, of the Museo Reina Sofía Library and Central Archive, which preserves documentation generated by the institution over the course of its activities and work. Thus, this portal aims primarily to facilitate public access to the content compiled and to promote its dissemination, with the latter framed in the activation of holdings through the development of different activities, including programmes such as Almost Books and document-based shows from Space D.
