C'est la Video - coming into dist

Hank Bull

1982, 11:00 minutes, colour


Made in the wake of an international telecommunications event in which artists exchanged video, music, and photocopies by phone, this tape developed into a kind of meditation on the problem of communications and translation from one cultural context to another. It advocates the development of exchanges that would involve artists of Africa, Asia, and South America. The text is French, German, Italian, English, and Pigmy Adib.
