1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Illustrates how early documentary producers worked to establish relationships with broadcast television that would deliver their independently conceived and produced television to large broadcast audiences
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
Decentralized communications projects( Visual )

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

Generated by artists, public access cable producers, and video collectives, the video anthology included in this videocassette marks the efforts of cultural activists to redefine the asymmetrical relationship between transmission and reception, the production and consumption of American television
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
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
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
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
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

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part 4 of a program presenting the first decade of a comprehensive history of experimental and independent video. 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.

Surveying the first decade : video art and alternative media in the U.S( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part 6 of a program presenting the first decade of a comprehensive history of experimental and independent video. Generated by artists, public access cable producers, and video collectives, this video anthology marks the efforts of cultural activists to redefine the asymmetrical relationship between transmission and reception, the production and consumption of American television. The introduction of the portapak in the politically-charged late '60s inspired proposals for a radically decentralized information system. By the mid-70's there existed a burgeoning alternative media network of public access cable channels, media art centers, public television stations and a range of independent venues that included pirate TV, media laboratories, and library video programs
