This paper will focused on the AHRC funded research project EWVA European Women’s Video Art in the 70s and 80s (2015-2017, DJCAD, University of Dundee) led by Prof. Elaine Shemilt. Co-Investigator is Prof. Stephen Patridge; Researcher, Leuzzi and Archivist, Adam Lockhart. EWVA aims to retrace and reassess the germinal early contribution of European women artists to video as an artform. Despite the fact that several women artists had been experimenting with the medium in the 70s and 80s, their fundamental experimentation is still marginalised and has partially fallen into oblivion. EWVA aims to strength their profiles and identities within the art historical canon and support their recognition.
