Founding of imai, intermedia art institute, Düsseldorf

In 2006, the non-profit foundation imai, intermedia art institute, is established for the purpose of recording the extensive collection of video art of the Cologne media agency 235 Media. The archive contains some 3,000 works of artistic and documentary value, which provide a broad overview of the development of video art from the pioneer years in the 1960s through to the present day. Since its founding, imai has conserved and appraised the works and organized distribution.
