Description

In close collaboration with Videokunstarkivet (The Norwegian Video Art Archive) Feil forlag releases the book Lives and Videotapes: The Inconsistent History of Norwegian Video Art. The book is an integrated part of the archival project done by Videokunstarkivet, carrying out an ambitious plan to preserve and make accessible a part of Norwegian art history threatened with oblivion.

Lives and Videotapes: The Inconsistent History of Norwegian Video Art attempts to reveal how, why, and under what circumstances many of the early video artworks made in Norway came about – and what makes them important for posterity. How did these artists perceive video as a medium? What were their points of reference? What conceptions of art were they challenging, and how was the medium of video involved in influencing the general perception of art?

The book is written by Marit Paasche, head of research at Videokunstarkivet, and it contains six in-depth interviews with artists who contributed in their own right to the establishing of video as an art form in Norway, illustrated by unique imagery. The preface is written by former assistant director at LUX, Mike Sperlinger.

The publication is supported by the Arts Council Norway, Fritt Ord, the Royal Norwegian Consulate General in New York and Office for Contemporary Art in Oslo.

Edition of 500.
