Archival history
Black Box Foundation and Open Society Archives have been in contact since the establishment of OSA in 1995. Depositing the invaluable and unique video and textual collection at OSA began in 2011 by Black Box handing over 90 short documentaries; videos documenting the 1989 Opposition Roundtable Negotiations along with the transcripts in electronic format; news and other political programs produced and broadcast by the Hungarian Television in 1989; and DLT data tapes with the raw, unedited footage produced by Black Box in 1988-1989. Further shipping of video, textual and electronic records to OSA continued between 2012 and 2015, including the entire original analog video camera material shot between 1988 and 2008; their script lists, and the entire collection of documentary films produced by Black Box between 1988 and 2008.
