Artists' video : an international guide by Electronic Arts Intermix (Organization) ( Book )
3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 333 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

Gendered confrontations ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 57 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 )
3 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 57 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

Explorations of presence, performance, and audience ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 52 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
The Misfits 30 years of Fluxus ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1993 and 2001 in English and held by 49 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
