EARLY VIDEO ART AND EXPERIMENTAL FILM NETWORKS edited by ECAL / Francois Bovier
ECAL, 2017 First edition, 268pp, 12 1/2" X 9 1/2" Softcover
Comprising an international history of video art and experimental cinema networks in the early 1970s, this volume examines various exhibitions, broadcasts, and distribution structures, including a case study on the Anthology Film Archives developed by Jonas Mekas. It is divided into two parts: the first explores the emergence and consolidation of video art networks at an international level; the second focuses more specifically on two exhibitions (‘New Forms in Film’ and ‘Une histoire du cinéma’) and the museification of experimental cinema. The book features rare and previously unpublished images and documents alongside commissioned essays.
