Collection Catalogues
The British Artists' Film and Video Study Collection is dedicated to documenting the achievements of British moving-image artists. It contains over 4000 video copies of artists' works, approximately 5000 still images, files on 450 artists, a library of over 1000 books and magazines, a collection of historical posters and publicity materials, and documentation relating to key artist-led organisations, public funding bodies, etc. The on-line catalogues list the majority (but not all) of its holdings, as the collection continues to grow. (Volunteer cataloguers are always welcome). We are in the process of expanding our coverage to include artists and organisations from Europe and the rest of the world.
