The project Asynchronous. Documentaries and Experimental Films on the Holocaust. From the Collection of the Arsenal – Institute for Film and Video Art e.V. is dedicated to the remembrance of the victims of the Holocaust – a subject that is of particular significance for our institution, given that the cinematic engagement with the Holocaust has formed a key concern of our work since the very foundation of our association in 1963, then called the "Friends of the German Film Archive“. This is still apparent to this day, whether in our cinema program, that of the Berlinale Forum we organize, or in our arsenal distribution portfolio. In order to ensure this form of cinematic remembrance also remains accessible for coming generations, a selection of 46 titles from our film collection has been put together, ten of which will be digitized or, if already available in digital form, acquired for digital projection.
In the framework of the project, this catalogue of the thematically relevant works from our collection has been published in cooperation with the FU seminar at the Department of Film Studies to present and contextualize the films in question.
