The Center for Contemporary Art (a registered non-profit organization) was founded in 1998 to promote time-based and contemporary artistic practices in Israel.

The CCA maintains an archive of video pieces by Israeli and international artists, with works from the 1960s to the present. It is accessible to students, curators, video professionals, and the general public upon request.

The Israeli Center for Digital Art was founded to promote and distribute media art and video art in Israel. It is the first exhibition space in Israel dedicated to presenting media art, video art, net art and interactive sound.

The Video Archive contains more than 1,200 titles, including works by Israeli and International artists who have exhibited at the center by artists who have contributed works over the years. Following many requests by local Israeli scholars, students, and art lovers we decided to transform the collection into a video archive open to the public.

The archive is intended primarily to represent local contemporary artistic practice. It is distinguished by a concentration of local and regional (Near East) work and by creating work contacts with similar bodies worldwide based on the exchange of information, knowledge, and work collections, enabling the expansion of the archive and the promotion of Israeli artists abroad.

The Video Archive includes video art works, sound works, films, and documentation of performances and installations that were exhibited at the center as well as other works by leading Israeli artists in the field of media art. Thematically, many of the works are linked through questions of identity, ethnicity, and nationalism, as well as other socio-political issues relevant to the region.
