Various Artists - Installations 75 06
Discover the archive of the Dutch Institute for Media Art (Het Nederlands Instituut voor Mediakunst, formerly Montevideo). Reviewing video installations from their own collection. This 3 DVD-set contains registrations of an enormous amount of works (133 in total!) divided in 3 periods: 1975-1990 (Peter Zegveld, Nan Hoover, Lydia Schouten, Jeffrey Shaw a.o.), 1990-1995 (Kees Aafjes, Fiona Tan, Pieter Baan Muller a.o.), 1995-2006 (Jaap de Jonge, Erwin Olaf, JODI, Mark Bain a.o). Problem is of course the limited possibilities of this medium to really do justice to the original works, but is of course a fantastic historical overview from the earliest days of video art until (almost) now.
