Video Data Bank

The Video Data Bank is the leading resource in the United States for videotapes by and about contemporary artists. The VDB collections feature innovative video work made by artists from an aesthetic, political or personal point of view. The collections include seminal works that, seen as a whole, describe the development of video as an art form originating in the late 1960's and continuing to the present. All of the video in our collections employs innovative uses of form and technology mixed with original visual style to address contemporary art and cultural themes.

Founded in 1976 at the inception of the media arts movement in the United States, the Video Data Bank is one of the nation's largest providers of alternative and art-based video. Through a very successful national and international distribution service, the VDB distributes video art, documentaries made by artists and taped interviews with visual artists, photographers and critics. We do not distribute features originating on film and distributed on videotape.
