It’s the largest collection of items from film, theatre and TV in Germany. One of the most important archives worldwide. Cologne University’s collection is still growing and conducted for eternity, as Dr. Gerald Köhler says.
The archive features a wide range of topics: film posters, stage designs, old photos, masks and puppets. Some of those items date back to ancient China or Egypt.
The transatlantic diablog takes you on a trip through the archives – kept in an old castle of the 14th century.
Here’s Theatre Scholar Prof. Peter W. Marx tweeting about one of the lastest additions to the collection:
