Abstract (English)

"Vtape was born in 1980, so it seemed fitting to invite young curators to study, research and otherwise reflect on video from this decade of our nascence. Thus developed the idea of the Curatorial Incubator v.4 : That 80s Show. [...] The only catch was that the curators had to have been born in 1980 or later. This would, we assumed, result in a new look at video from this decade. After all, our curators were children when these videos were made. Removed from the first hand experience of the lived-in discourses present in the 80s, each has distilled a look back that is intense and unexpected. Here we see the familiar topics of that decade -- censorship, AIDS, the dialogue around artist-as-performer, and the role of technology in video -- take on new life and vitality." -- p. 3.
