Please join us at 192 BOOKS for a conversation between Barbara London and Paul Pfeiffer on the past, present, and future of Video and related arts.

“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.”
