Visitors can immerse themselves in the history of video art from the 1970s to the present day and explore it interactively: information sheets on more than 1,000 videos stretch across the lounge walls and make the principle of searching and finding a physical experience. The videos can be viewed individually on the tablets provided. Comfortable seating invites you to linger. In addition, an app offers specific search options. The selection of videos is constantly being expanded. Changing video programs are curated on the large projection screen.
