The Academy of Media Arts Cologne Archive

The Academy of Media Arts Cologne has taken on the task of establishing a central archive, in order to catalogue and store the artistic productions and positions created at the KHM as well as the history of the school in its entirety and to ensure long-term access in fitting with the various source media.
For a long time, archivists and collecting institutions have asked themselves which organisational and technical measures for the preservation of media art should be employed in order to ensure access beyond the mostly short-term development lifecycles that hardware and software is subject to. The archive confronts these challenges with its preservation projects and new concepts around the distribution of information.

+25 KHM: Studio discussions with KHM personalities

+25 KHM: Studio discussions with KHM personalities
In 2015, in the 25th year of its existence, the Academy of Media Arts Cologne invited the people who established and shaped it over many years back to the academy. What initially led them to the KHM? What occupied them, moved them and kept them alive as artists, filmmakers or theorists at the KHM? Every one of them created the Academy of Media Arts Cologne with their spirit and their imagination, each from their unique artistic, theoretical and philosophical perspective. Is the interplay of these different perspectives the sound of the KHM? Personal narrative is a concern of this series. The next guest is Prof. Andreas Henrich. His studio discussion goes online on 4 July.
