Canada - Video: A Medium in Search of its Task

by René Coëlho

Canadian Video Art, 1985, p. 5

S.N., 1985

Coëlho contrasts the existence of video art as an independent medium in Canada since the end of the sixties, with the newer introduction of video in Western Europe. The earlier introduction in Canada is attributed to Canadian economic policies, geography and cultural politics.
