Deutsches Kabarettarchiv

In German, the term "Kabarett" describes a satirical revue, often from a point of view of opposition to mainstream politics and attitudes. The archive in Mainz is designed like a museum and split across two venues, namely Bernburg Castle in Saale (Saxony-Anhalt) and the historic Proviant Magazin in Mainz where the archive has its headquarters.

The centre is dedicated to the archiving and scientific review of the many forms of satire, in particular political and literary satire, its authors and performers. The archive also looks after numerous legacies.
