Founded in 1971 and thus the oldest collection of video art in Germany, the n.b.k. Video-Forum yearly extends its comprehensive collections of more than 1,700 works. In the year 2018 the purchase of video works for the collection was made possible by funds from the Stiftung Deutsche Klassenlotterie (part of the artists’ funding scheme by the Senate of Berlin's Departement of Cultural Affairs) and by funds from the institutional funding by the Stiftung Deutsche Klassenlotterie.
