Marit Paasche - Lives and Videotapes – The Inconsistent History of Norwegian Video Art
Attempts to reveal how, why, and under what circumstances many of the early video artworks made in Norway came about – and what makes them important for posterity. Through conversations with artists Marianne Heske, Terje Munthe, Kjell Bjorgeengen, Inghild Karlsen and others, Paasche tries to find out what their points of reference were, and what conceptions of art they were challenging.
