The Poster Archive contains approximately 1,500 posters and drafts for posters from before 1945, as well as some 15,000 posters from after 1945 until the present. For the most part the collection contains posters of German provenance.
The posters created before 1945 have all been indexed, photographed and digitized. Very few of the posters originating after 1945 have been digitized and indexed in the database of the Deutsche Kinemathek.
For exhibitions at public institutions, the fee for a loan is the price for making a large format slide.
For publications, the fee is also the price of a large format slide, plus archive fees. If copyrighted, artist royalties may also be charged.
