Point of View: An Anthology of the Moving Image

Point of View: An Anthology of the Moving Image, produced by Bick Productions (Ilene Kurtz Kretzschmar and Caroline Bourgeois) and the New Museum of Contemporary Art, was conceived to make accessible the work of some of the most important artists working in video, film, and digital imagery today. Point of View is the first commercially available anthology of its kind, serving as a point of entry to these new works, and as an ongoing resource for museums, universities, and art schools around the world. 

The Anthology consists of a boxed set of eleven all region DVD's, each containing a newly-commissioned work; an in-depth interview with the artist conducted by either Dan Cameron, senior curator at large at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, curator Hans Ulrich Obrist of the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville Paris, or Richard Meyer, Associate Professor, Department of Art History, University of Southern California; an image library of the artist's previous work; and biographical material. Subtitles are available in Spanish, German, Italian, French, and Japanese.

Generous Funding for Point of View has been provided by the Executive Directors: Jumex Collection, Mexico, and Blink Digital, New York, and Sponsor: The New Art Trust, San Francisco.

If you are interested in exhibiting the work on the set for any paid public performance, you must seek the approval of the artists.

This DVD collection is available for educational purchase only.
