The collection of the imai foundation consists of a digital archive and a distribution program. The collection documents the international history of video art from the 1960s until today.
imai continually includes new audio-visual artworks in its distribution program. Once a year in November, a jury, appointed by the imai foundation, meets and deliberates on new admissions of artists in the imai’s video distribution. Jury members propose artistic positions, out of which new admissions are subsequently selected. The panel of experts consists of regular members Axel Wirths (Executive committee member of the imai foundation), Dr. Renate Buschmann (Director of the imai foundation), Darija Simunovic (imai’s Collection & Distribution) and two external video art experts. New admissions of artists will be publicly introduced at the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf, where the imai foundation is based.
imai sells over 1,500 works of international video art.
