This essay discusses the archive and the archival function of one monographic museum: the Roger Raveelmuseum in Machelen-aan-de-Leie. The author starts from opposing notions of 'monument' and 'document', a monument being suspect in its rethorical intention to commemorate, a document being (or claiming to be) an objective registration of the past. Liefooghe concludes that the Roger Raveel archive, as a collection of documents, does contain a 'monumental' value.
