Video Collection of Kunsthaus Zürich

The Kunsthaus Zürich has continuously collected video art since 1979. Video is understood here as an independent, creative medium, meaning that documentary and commercial productions are only seldom considered. When dealing with the area of modern art, however, documentary tapes are collected by the library. From the medium’s pioneer years in the 1960s through to the current video boom, the museum has works by internationally renowned artists as well as a cross-section of Swiss video productions.
