The Autobiography of Video: Outline for a Revisionist Account of Early Video Art

by Ina Blom

Critical Inquiry, Winter 2013, v. 39, no. 2, pp. 276-295

Using an alternative historical approach, the author tells the story of video's early and modern days, through a medium-based study of video's relation to social memory, subjectivity, temporality and immediate representation, and technological advancements, resulting in more artistic freedom, as well as the erasing of boundaries between video and film.
