VIDEO ART. The name is equivocal. A good name. It leaves open all the questions and asks them anyways. Is this an art form, a new genre? An anthology of values activity conducted in a particular arena defined by display on a cathode ray tube? The kind of video made by a spcial class of people – artists – whose works are exhibited primarily in what is called “the art world” – ARTISTS’ VIDEO? An inspection of the names in the catalogue gives the easy and not quite sufficient answer that it is this last we are considering, ARTISTS’ VIDEO.
