Video re/View: The (best) Source for Critical Writing on Canadian Artists' Video

by Kevin Dowler

POV, Winter 1997, no. 31, p. 2

A review of Peggy Gale and Lisa Steele's anthology on independent video. Video re/View captures the critical discourses that have engaged video artists, and writers, over the last thirty years. Avoiding the inclination to redefine the history of independent video, Gale and Steele allow "the subject to speak," searching through obscure and defunct texts to contextualize video art history and grant it an appropriate sense of depth.
