Founding of the Video-Forum at n.b.k., Berlin

The founding of the Video-Forum is the basis for the oldest public video collection in Germany. One of its main missions is to conserve the moving image and keep it accessible for the public by adapting to technical developments. The holdings of the collection are digitized for this purpose and filed, cataloged, and tagged. In 1972, the Videothek n.b.k. is founded, the first video library of its kind in West Germany and West Berlin.
