Founded in 1971, the Video-Forum is one of the oldest collections of video art in Germany and comprises over 1,700 works of video art from international artists. The comprehensive collection is yearly extended by several new works. 
In the year 2021, the purchase of video works for the collection was made possible by financial resources from the artists’ funding scheme by the Senate of Berlin's Department of Cultural Affairs and by the financial means from the institutional funding of the n.b.k., both funded by the LOTTO-Stiftung Berlin.
