Video Art from Austria from the 1960s to the Millennium Fri 30th of May
The Kunstverein (art association) Schwerin invites to a special night, dedicated to Austrian video art from the early pioneers like Peter Weibel, Valie Export to recent works from the 21st century. The extensive compilation is based on the Video Edition Austria and Release 01, both published by the media workshop Vienna. The edition offers a representative view over 25 years of video art and artistic video documentation in Austria. In fact this compilation, even so it only features Austrian works, gives a condensed overview of the development of video art in general.
