Abstract (English)

"In this book, Yvonne Spielmann argues that video is not merely and intermediate stage between analog and digital but a medium in its own right [...] Spielmann considers three strands of video praxis: documentary, experimental art, and experimental image-making (which is concerned primarily with signal processing). She then discusses selected works by such artists as Vito Acconci, Ulike Rosenbach, Joan Jonas, and Nam June Paik. Finally, Spielmann discusses the potential of interactivity, complexity, and hybridization in the future of video as a medium" -- p. [4] of cover.
