Video/Art: The First Fifty Years

Barbara London
13.7 × 20.3 cm
280 pp

The curator who founded MoMA’s video program recounts the artists and events that defined the medium’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 analog 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.

Hardcover, colour.
