Founded in 1971 as an artists' and cultural producers' initiative, the Video-Forum, with over 1400 international works, is the oldest collection of video art in Germany. Focal points of the collection are Fluxus, feminist video, historical and contemporary video art from Berlin as well as media-reflective approaches. Key works from the early period of video art are equally well represented as current productions. This book documents the complete contents of the collection and includes illustrations, forming a comprehensive compendium of international video art for artists, curators and teachers.

The publication can be purchased at local bookshops, via the website of Buchhandlung Walther König, and at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein. Members of Neuer Berliner Kunstverein can buy the book at n.b.k. for the special price of 15.00 Euro.
