e-flux is pleased to announce the release of the online video archive of Unitednationsplaza, Nightschool and The Building, comprising more than two hundred hours of recordings of lectures and presentations, at www.unitednationsplaza.org.

Unitednationsplaza was a temporary, experimental school in Berlin, initiated by Anton Vidokle following the cancellation of Manifesta 6 on Cyprus, in 2006. Developed in collaboration with Boris Groys, Liam Gillick, Hatasha Sadr Haghighian, Nikolaus Hirsch, Martha Rosler, Walid Raad, Jalal Toufic and Tirdad Zolghadr, the project traveled to Mexico City (2008) and, eventually, to New York City under the name Night School (2008-2009) at the New Museum. Its program was organized around a number of public seminars, most of which are now available in their entirety in the online archive.

After Unitednationsplaza left Berlin, Julieta Aranda, Magdalena Magiera and Anton Vidokle re-opened the building that housed it as The Building (2008-2009), which hosted e-flux video rental, a reading room comprising several thousand publications on contemporary art and theory, and a series of monthly lectures by the Berlin based critic Jan Verwoert titled Why are conceptual artists painting again? Because they think it’s a good idea—also available in their entirety in the archives.

The video archive, realized by Jan Gerber and Susanne Lang and designed by Min Choi and Jeff Ramsey, is organized in four chapters:
