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

6 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 356 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 )

3 editions published between 1978 and 2014 in English and held by 158 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

Paik's classic psychedelic collage of off-air images mixed with excerpts of Paik's tapes and films and tapes by friends Jud Yalkut and Robert Breer.

The Misfits : 30 years of Fluxus by Lars Movin( Visual )

4 editions published between 1993 and 2001 in English and held by 50 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 )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 41 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."

Performance of video-imaging tools( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Artists explore video as an electronic material, and they are interested in the process of translating energy and time into waveforms, frequencies, voltages, and finally into video and audio images. The video pieces are documents of dialogues with tools or real-time performances of tools where a video signal is routed through an interface of modifiable electronic instruments
Critiques of art and media as commodity and spectacle( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through projects that are oppositional to both the economic and attentional structures of broadcast TV, artists target the nature of its spectacle, spellout critical manifestoes, undermine the selection of newsworthy events and public storytelling, and challenge consumers' investment in televisions' cast of heroes and occasional heroines. In a media world still dominated by commercial interests, artists also re-present or quote corporate television and film images in an effort to reframe them and reconstruct the ideological context that constructs meaning for television viewers
Gendered confrontations( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 15 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
Approaching narrative--"There are problems to be solved"( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The works in this videocassette establish inventive formal staging for epic story-telling. These projects have no interest in seducing an audience into accepting a semless narrative illusion of reality. Instead, problems are constructed around and audience's understaning of the real and construction of their attention. Audiences have to work to derive meaning from videotapes that seek to rupture expectations of narrative closure and illusions of an authorial point of view. Problems to be solved are housed in radically revisioned theaters, and the experimental pieces also challenge public storytelling and seek to decentralize cultural mythmaking by inventing new forms of theatrical space
Investigations of the phenomenal world--space, sound, and light( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this video anthololgy, the body of the artist functions as one kind of instrument in the presence of, or complicated by, the video and audio recording instruments. Issues of attention such as boredom and exhaustion of both the artist and the audience, are embraced as part of the potential dynamic range of the work. Some of the video projects also propose structural relationships between natural or biological and electronic systems
Explorations of presence, performance, and audience( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The artists included in this video anthology moved into video from performance, sculpture, photography, writing, and dance. They used the video camera and monitor as time-based tools to investigate perception or as performative strategies within the paradoxically intimate and distanced theater of the monitor. In most of the pieces, the performer constructs an active relationship with the audience, and the viewer's awareness is specifically acknowledged under both live and remote viewing conditions
