Surveying the First Decade: Video Art and Alternative Media in the U.S. 1968-1980

Since its original release in 1995, this comprehensive two-volume, eight-program package on the history of experimental and independent video curated by Christine Hill was available only on VHS tape. The DVD launch brings 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.

“The release of this fabulous comprehensive history of independent video art couldn’t be more timely. It is especially critical for this vital and diverse history to appear now, when there is a whole new generation of videomakers and viewers.”
--Martha Rosler, artist, educator and critic

Included in REWIND is an essay by curator Christine Hill.
