The History of the INM-Institute for New Media

Even in the most turbulent times the INM was always in content as well as in organisation a focus of developments and flows in the New Media. The institute associated to the Städelschule, University of Fine Arts, Frankfurt, served as an experimental labour of a New Media avant-garde in the creative competition of the fine arts with the ?interactive? arts. As an autonomous institution that is borne by voluntary engagement of a non-profit association and the individual enthusiasm we were and we are to act independently on the one hand and to cooperate at the same synergistically in a perfect way with public institutions and private partners in the FrankfurtRineMain area.
