The foundation imai - inter media art institute (NRW- Forums, Kultur und Wissenschaft, Ehrenhof, Dusseldorf) is Germany’s first non-profit institution dedicated to support the distribution, preservation and research of video, film and media based arts. The institute conducts research in the field of conservation and presentation of Media Art, organizes exhibitions, screenings and symposia.
