The Audiovisual Archive is a center of audiovisual production focused in the preservation, conservation, catalogue and publishing of contemporary Argentinean culture.
It is constituted by:
- Audiovisual interviews —produced by its own team— focused on the lives of the artists and on the creative process of the different disciplines: Literature, Theater, Visual Arts, Music and Movies.
- A documental base that includes audio and video recordings of TV and radio programs, readings, conferences, exhibitions, theater plays, documentaries and films on life and work of Argentinean writers, visual artists, theater personalities and musicians.
The Buenos Aires Audiovisual Archive gathers its own productions of audio, video, photograph and documental registers on Argentinean artists, and the ones received as donations, reproductions or purchased. The documental base goes from 1938 to nowadays.
The audiovisual documents can be consulted at the Public Attention Area, equipped with computers, television sets and VHS and DVD players. Through an always updated database it is possible to search by author, date, subject or series.
