As this book demonstrates, video art, which first emerged five decades ago, has lost none of its vitality. With more than 50 key works of video art from the fields of “Body and Sould,” “Public Space,” “Environment,” and “Virtual Reality” from the JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION, the book offers profound insight into the more recent evolution of media art. By focusing on engagement with the contemporary world, the collection seeks to create a panorama of social and cultural tendencies. The conceptual structure of the exhibition concentrates on media art from the beginning of the 1960s to the present. With essays by Bernhard Serexhe, Susanne Pfeffer, and Peter Weibel as well as a preface by Julia Stoschek.
