EWVA - European Women's Video Art in the 70s and 80s

Abstract

Despite the fact that several women artists had been
experimenting with the medium since the 70s and 80s
in Europe, their 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’ fundamental and
pioneering experiments remain under researched and
neither accessible nor critical writing upon them
published.
This gap is evident both in academia and in the
museum sector, and more generally within
contemporary culture.
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.
