Perceptions of a real event: tensions between the seen and the unseen in performance and its video distribution

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

Italy was a vibrant centre of video art production and exhibition throughout the 1970s and 1980s. This early experimentation attracted artists from all over the world and laid the foundation for video art. However since then, early Italian video art has received only scant international exposure. Its contribution to the history of video as an art form has for too long escaped the recognition that it so unequivocally deserves.

Edited by Laura Leuzzi and Stephen Partridge, REWINDItalia Early Video Art in Italy aims to bring the Italian, seminal, early video experimentation back into the international spotlight and provide a a unique resource for research and study.

The volume includes seminal essays, translated for the first time into English, plus newly commissioned texts by leading scholars and artists, and a wide selection of video stills and other images.

Authors include: Renato Barilli, Maria Gloria Bicocchi, Lola Bonora, Silvia Bordini, Paolo Cardazzo, Cinzia Cremona, Sean Cubitt, Bruno Di Marino, Simonetta Fadda, Vittorio Fagone, Marco Maria Gazzano, Luciano Giaccari, Mirco Infanti, Laura Leuzzi, Sandra Lischi, Adam Lockhart, Stephen Partridge, Cosetta G. Saba, Emile Shemilt, Studio Azzurro, Valentina Valentini, Grahame Weinbren.

Foreword by Don Foresta; introduction by Stephen Partridge; the volume closes with The Chronology of Video Art in Italy (1952–1992), by Valentino Catricalà and Laura Leuzzi. Translation by Simona Manca.
