Video/Art: The First Fifty Years - Hardcover


“…something new does not emerge out of nowhere, there are roots and connections.” – Barbara London

  • The curator who founded MoMA's video program recounts the artists and events that defined video art’s first 50 years.
  • Since the introduction of portable consumer electronics nearly a half-century ago, artists throughout the world have adapted their latest technologies to art-making.
  • In this book, curator Barbara London traces the history of video art as it transformed into the broader field of media art - from analogue to digital, small TV monitors to wall-scale projections, and clunky hardware to user-friendly software. In doing so, she reveals how video evolved from fringe status to be seen as one of the foremost art forms of today.
