ABOUT MEDIALIBRARY


 

An important aspect of Argos' multiple functions is the constantly expanding Medialibrary. Over the years, Argos has created a unique medialibrary, which contains 4000 film and video titles turning it into the largest collection of its kind in Belgium. The Medialibrary also contains more than 4000 books, catalogues, specialist art magazines and critical compilations on audio-visual art and visual culture. A full online catalogue is available on this website.

Argos is a partner Gama (Gateway to Archives of Media Art), a central online portal to Media Art in Europe that is supported by the European Community's eContentplus programme. The partnership with GAMA, as well as partnerships with Digitising Contemporary Art (DCA) and the Europeana portal is part of our ongoing efforts to open up the Argos archive to a larger audience.
