Founding of the Labor für antiquierte Videosysteme at ZKM Karlsruhe

Founded in 2004, the Labor für antiquierte Videosysteme takes on the difficult task of preserving video art from the ZKM’s archives and its running projects and exhibitions. Possessing a large array of functioning historical equipment, coupled with state-of-the-art digital technology, the laboratory has been able to bring to life over fifty obsolete video formats from the 1960s through to the 1980s, to digitize them in high quality, and thus preserve them for posterity.
