Abstract

http://www.ewva.ac.uk

EWVA European Women’s Video Art in the 70s and 80s aims to recover and reassess the seminal contribution of women artists to early video art in Europe and more generally to the development and evolution of video as a then relatively new medium.

Despite the fact that several women artists had been experimenting with the medium since the Seventies and Eighties, women artists’ contribution to video art is still marginalised and has partially fallen into oblivion. Several women artists’ video works are today lost or have not yet been migrated to digital archival formats.

As a result many women artists’ seminal and pioneering experiments remain under researched and neither accessible nor critical writing upon them published.

EWVA aims to fill a fundamental gap in the history of video art and provide a useful tool to practitioners, artists and scholars as well as organisations (including curators, contemporary art museums, archives, foundations, media centres). It will inform and contribute to a future recovery and migration to digital format of women artists’ videotapes that are at risk of loss due to the obsolescence of the original formats.

EWVA was launched at the Media Art Festival in Rome in February 2015.

The project is based at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, University of Dundee.
