Artists' video : an international guide by Electronic Arts Intermix (Organization)( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This multicultural and international survey of artists' videotapes reflects the extraordinary richness and diversity of independent media art production from the late 1960s to the early 1990s. Presenting video's current investigations as well as milestones in its historical evolution, this volume resonates with the dynamic, often radical forms and strategies that define video as one of the most provocative modes of contemporary artistic practice. Included are more than 1,500 works by over 120 artists from the United States, Europe, Latin America, Australia, and Japan. From Vito Acconi's psychodramatic performance monologues to Julie Zando's analytical narratives of sexuality and power, Artists' Video: An International Guide offers important examples of virtually every area of inquiry that has engaged independent videomakers in the past twenty-five years. Although not intended as the definitive history of video art, this volume, through its close look at the artists and their works, inevitably traces the major thematic and technical developments and directions that have distinguished video as an art form. Experimental narrative, media critique, technological documentary, "guerrilla television," and performance and conceptual exercises are among the many genres represented in the Electronic Arts Intermix collection of artists' videotapes--one of the most extensive and significant in the world--upon which this survey is based. Video art's influential pioneers and major innovators--Nam June Paik, Bill Viola, Dara Birnbaum, William Wegman, Joan Jonas, Peter Campus, Vito Acconci, and the Vasulkas, for example--are at the center of the presentation. Contributions from well-known figures such as Jean-Luc Godard, John Baldessari, and Robert Wilson directly reflect video's relationship to the cinema, the visual arts, and avant-garde theater. Dynamic works by young artists and activists bring video art into the 1990s. In addition to biographical information, descriptive material on his or her works, and recognition of specific contributions to video art, each artist is also accorded a videography, a chronological listing of every videotape and video installation produced by that person. A selected international bibliography is also included. No other such comprehensive survey of video art exists. Its extensive written text and valuable research material make this publication an essential resource for scholars, art historians, educators, curators, and others involved in art and media. It also provides the general public with much-needed introduction to artists' video

Two video reports from China acupuncture and herbal medicine( Visual )

2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In response to an invitation from the Chinese government, twenty-three American family planning workers from the fields of medicine, public health, media and administration spent seventeen days during August and September of 1977 in the People's Republic of China studying its birth control, maternity and child care methods and facilities. This video contains two video reports made during this trip: In China Family Planning is No Private Matter (32 min), and Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine (22 min). On this trip, they inquired about the government's methods of surveillance that were instrumental in conducting the declared policy of one child per family and observed its consequences in factories and communes. In their effort to comprehend the breadth of the government's health care policies, they recorded the extensive use of herbal therapy and acupuncture. Here is presented their recording of a birth by caesarian section using acupuncture as the sole anesthetic. Shortly afterward they talked with the mother as she celebrated the birth of a healthy son. The People-to-People China Trip was led by Phyllis Vineyard and Margaret Whitman, and was facilitated by Planned Parenthood USA as part of its exploration of the methods and consequences of family planning worldwide

Gendered confrontations( Visual )

3 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These feminist video works challenge the reigning but waning modernist and materials-based discourse of the '70s, as well as psychoanalytic theory and the construction of the subject. Video is used to examine one's own life and the experiences of female friends and family, and to question one's own relationship to what is coming to be understood as "her"/history. As histories of women in the arts and in society are explored, critical attention is also focused onto speculation about the existence of an essential female aesthetic, and the position of women as objects of the (male) gaze
The Misfits 30 years of Fluxus( Visual )

4 editions published between 1993 and 2001 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary is an unconventional video portrait of the Fluxus movement, an international group of artists who since the early 1960s have challenged and disrupted our ideas of what art can be. The tape was produced largely in Venice in 1990, when many of the original Fluxus artists met for a major exhibition in connection with the Biennale, almost thirty years after the first iconoclastic Fluxus concerts were held in cities around the world. Employing layered manipulations of video technology, this portrait includes interviews with leading Fluxus artists, documentation of their works, and historic archival footage from thirty years of groundbreaking Fluxus performances, films, and video tapes

Meat joy( Visual )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Meat joy is an erotic rite -- excessive, indulgent, a celebration of flesh as material: raw fish, chicken, sausages, wet paint, transparent plastic, ropes, brushes, paper scrap. Its propulsion is towards the ecstatic -- shifting and turning among tenderness, wildness, precision, abandon; qualities that could at any moment be sensual, comic, joyous, repellent. Physical equivalences are enacted as a psychic imagistic stream, in which the layered elements mesh and gain intensity by the energy complemet of the audience. The original performances became notorious and introduced a vision of the "sacred erotic."

Rock my religion a video by Dan Graham( Visual )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

..."Thesis on the relation between religion and rock music in contemporary culture. Graham formulates a history that begins with the Shakers, an early religious community who practiced self-denial and ecstatic trance dances. With the "reeling and rocking" of religious revivals as his point of departure, Graham analyzes the emergence of rock music as religion with the teenage consumer in the isolated suburban milieu of the 1950s, locating rock's sexual and ideological context in post-World War II America. The music and philosophies of Patti Smith, who made explicit the trope that rock is religion, are his focus"--Electronic Arts Intermix website
