The online video archive of the Videonale presents

With the online video archive, VIDEONALE makes the contents of its archives available to the public and offers a platform for its artists beyond the runtime of the festival.

The video archive is intended to provide artists, curators, galleries, academics, students and all those interested in moving image art works with a tool for research and education, and enable them to inform themselves about works and artists exhibited at the Videonale.

The online video archive of Videonale is in constant development and will be successively supplemented with further videos.
