"Katalog over dansk videokunst / Catalogue of Danish Video Art"

At the web site you can get information about Danish artists working with video and  information about their video art works ("List of artists"), usually with a short video trailer. You can also get information based on the titles of the video art works ("List of titles"). This information was publisshed free of charges for the Danish artists.
