Opening of the Video Lounge

Video Lounge of the IMAI Foundation at the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf





The IMAI Foundation is making its unique archive of media art permanently available at the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf.

Visitors can immerse themselves in and interactively explore the history of video art from the 1970s to the present:
Info sheets on more than a thousand videos are spread out on the walls of the lounge and make it possible to experience the search-and-find principle physically. The videos can be called up individually on tablets provided. Comfortable seating furniture invites viewers to linger. In addition, an app offers specific search options. The selection of videos is being continuously expanded. Changing video programs are curated on the large projection wall.

Curator: Dr. Renate Buschmann
Conception and design: Agentur nexd
Project assistance: Angelika Gwozdz

The speakers at the opening on 18 July at 6 p.m. were:
→ Dr. Ingrid Stoppa-Sehlbach, Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of NRW
→ Prof. Dr. Jürgen Wilhelm, vice chairman of the Landschaftsversammlung Rheinland
→ Prof. Dr. Reiner Nachtwey, designated board member of the IMAI Foundation
