Similar to a small publishing house for quality literature, INDEX releases and distributes audiovisual publications relevant to the history of international and Austrian film, video and media art. There is a certain focus on Kurt Kren with three DVDs, but almost all important representatives of both Austrian avant-garde film and media art appear in the selection. The programme reveals also how highly differentiated the individual scenes have been: between the feminist body concept art of VALIE EXPORT and the Queer home movies by Pürrer/Scheirl, between the travel reflections of Lisl Ponger and the material studies by Gustav Deutsch, there are numerous references which are not based on common strategies or topics but on a dense array of audiovisual works dealing with identity, materiality and the many facets in between.
The label has meanwhile enlarged its programme with international artists such as Ivan Ladislav Galeta from Zagreb and Józef Robakowski from Poland, which indicates an intensive discovery of common horizons.
