Surveying the First Decade: Video Art and Alternative Media in the U.S.

Video Data Bank: Video Art and Video Artists

"Video Data Bank is pleased to announce the publication of the DVD box set edition of Surveying the First Decade: Video Art and Alternative Media in the U.S. Since its original release in 1995, this comprehensive two-volume, eight program package on the history of experimental and independent video has only been available on VHS tape. The DVD launch will bring this essential tool for the understanding of the development of media arts to a whole new generation of teachers, libraries, students and researchers.

The entire anthology (Volumes 1 & 2) includes more than 16 hours of historic video: 68 seminal titles by 60+ artists curated into eight programs ranging from conceptual, performance-based, feminist, and image-processed works, to documentary and grassroots community-based genres. The box set is accompanied by REWIND, a 200+ page study guide with curator’s essay, program and tape descriptions, extended bibliography, biographies and videographies of artists and a guide to collections of early video materials."

  1. Lástima que el VDB no lance casi nada para particulares y sean 1200 pepinos :-(

  2. Cierto, resulta un poco caro.
    ¿El de Kuchar lo sacaron finalmente para particulares?

    un saludo.

  3. Creo que no. Casi todo lo que saca el VDB es para instituciones.
