Today in the old German cities we can still meet the Middle Ages. Through their buildings, pictures and documents we can trace the history of their growth, the expansion of trade and development of craftsmanship. The proud and beautiful buildings of medieval cities and towns are a memento of their struggle for liberty and municipal independence.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
