At the core of the presentation is the documentation of the research project GRENZGANG in the integrated catalogue of the media library of the Academy of Art and Design (FHNW HGK). For two years GRENZGANG has been occupied, in the mode of artistic research (Frayling 1993, Tröndle 2012, Mersch 2015, Fernandes, Miranda 2015 ), with aspects of urban history, drawing on architectural heritage and cultural history. Both the application of partly digital (documentary) media and the formats of the resulting artworks and documentations illustrate how complex space and spatial experience in an increasingly digitally over-laid world can look. The artistic interpretations and interventions of GRENZGANG make those dimensions of specific places and spatial experiences sensorily accessible which are, for the most part, more difficultly perceived. The integrated catalogue of the media library attempts to display such artistic works in their heterogeneity and variety alongside other rather classic library resources. Typical challenges occurring on the threshold of the catalogue/archive in the aftermath of complex artistic research projects will be elucidated
