imai - inter media art institute
On the initiative of the media art agency 235
MEDIA and the City of Düsseldorf the first
non-profit foundation imai which is dedicated not
only to the distribution of media art, but also
to conservation and research issues is created.
Starting in the 1980s, the founders of 235 MEDIA,
Ulrich Leistner and Axel Wirths have built up an
extensive archive of video art as well as an
international distribution network. Thanks to the
active commitment of "Kunststiftung NRW" and the
support of "Kulturstiftung der Länder" and in
cooperation with "NRW Forum Kultur und
Wirtschaft" and "stiftung museum kunst palast"
both the collection and the distribution
structure of 235 MEDIA have now been transferred
to imai - inter media art institute.
The non-profit foundation imai is located in the
NRW Forum Kultur und Wirtschaft in Düsseldorf. In
November 2006 imai will present its field of
activities and a selection of represented artists
with a first exhibition and a congress.
