Tasks & Goal


Here media products are received, selected and catalogued to integrate them into the work of Soyuz Apollo. It contains over 4000 image and sound carriers of the formats VHS, Betamax, Video 2000, Super 8, 16 and 35mm, as well as various digital transcodings.

Head: Jim Jones


Here concepts are developed on the basis of the selected archive pieces to generate new media products. According to the current
characteristics and relations the available information becomes part of a new production practice.

Head: Otto Kiborg


Here the pieces from the archive and the production are programmed, compiled and circulated.
The distribution and the resulting reception is an inherent part of the medial information and thereby of the entire medial practice.

Head: Nihil Yang

  • “The best way to preserve information is to circulate it.”

  • “To edit media is part of the practice of continuous communication.”

  • “The decision of how to accomplish access is part of the medium.”


It´s our Goal to establish methods, that meet the requirements of the respective medial information
in its complex characteristics and coherences.

"Action is concept".
