Founding of the VIDEO COOPERATION EUROPÄISCHER KULTURINSTITUTE (VCEK)

At a conference at Museum Folkwang in Essen held in November 1973, various European culture institutes interested in forming a cooperative for producing videos announce the founding of the VIDEO COOPERATION EUROPÄISCHER KULTURINSTITUTE (VCEK). The goal is to tackle together all the subject-specific, material, and technical problems emerging out of introducing and using video technology in the institutions and their activities, as well as to begin joint production based on the guidelines set out by a program committee. The Folkwang Museum is the initiator, at this point in time already in possession of a fully equipped video studio.
