I don't know too much about video art, but you'll fine a lot of great experimental video clips at http://www.ubu.com/film/

Have you seen much Brakhage? He might be a good place to start.

Interesting concept. Some might call that art.


What is video art?

Is it a subcategory of experimental film, is it abstract animation, is it video from an art installation, is it video of an art performance, ...

Doesn't the definition cover everything you just listed and more? I don't think 'video art' is an exclusive label.

You could try the Index DVD series to sample different artists. These names will be new for most people - http://www.index-dvd.at/en/program.html

> Similar to a small publishing house for quality literature, INDEX releases and distributes audiovisual publications relevant to the history of international and Austrian film, video and media art. Information about the film- and videomakers and their production methods as well as analyses of the works are provided in a bilingual German-English booklet. INDEX DVDs are available to schools for educational use, as well as university institutes and libraries.

Michael Snow is worth checking out. I'd classify some of his experimental films as visual art. Here's a pretty good introduction to his work: http://www.jonathanrosenbaum.net/1983/09/michael-snow-tk/

Embedded is this one

> For epic visual breadth, perhaps the only Snow creation to rival Flight Stop is the three-hour film, La Région Centrale (The Central Region, 1971), in which a computer-operated camera spins in endlessly changing configurations around an uninhabited mountain landscape in northern Quebec. It probably wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call this film one of Snow’s least popular works — it certainly has the fewest laughs. But that’s largely because it’s so scary. There’s a direct assault on the senses, including one’s center of gravity, as the flip-flopping camera makes circular patterns at variable speeds that no human being could possibly duplicate, producing an experience roughly akin to riding a demonic ferris wheel. “I wanted to make the film a condensed day,” Snow explained. “It isn’t, really, but it does start in daylight, and then there’s sunset and sunrise, and it’s over at something like eleven.”

Well... film is film, video is digital.


Agreed, but I would also add any digital video.

Unrelated: I just checked and Peggy Ahwesh's short Strange Weather (1993) no longer is on Vimeo. I was going to link it. It was shot on a Fisher Price PXL-2000 and is around an hour long. I am conflicted on whether it should be categorized as video art or something else, because it is almost more of a documentary.


Well there could be another thread for experimental. I don't want to miss something cool that isn`t true video art

This might sound weird but I can't convince myself to visit the top three links since Europe is so gone and their culture has eroded to a complete sjw nightmare.

The last one seems decent since they're featuring older works that haven't been perverted by marxism.

>I am conflicted on whether it should be categorized as video art or something else, because it is almost more of a documentary.

Jonathan Rosenbaum says it's a documentary but I'd categorize it as drama / experimental. The film has actors. There are true life elements, the most interesting parts by far, and yet I don't think that makes it a documentary. The actress tells personal stories as a character, not as herself.

Unless they were really smoking crack? I didn't think they were, but I could be wrong.

There's no way this is from 1987, it looks like a webm someone would make in 2016, the video earrapes you non stop, and 20 seconds after the Hitler Speech intro we see one of the /pol/ meme sculptures. Either this guy was a time traveler or this is /pol/'s favorite movie of all time and for the past few years they've been emulating it.



That was actually the Captcha I got for that post by the way so as far as things go it's confirmed, Woody Vasulka created /pol/.

When I checked the torrent sites there are only the full DVDs.

I watched some of Program 1 last night.


Vertical Roll (1972) - Essential video art, possibly the best of the bunch. I knew about this one but I'd never watched all of it. A problem unique to video - slipping vertical hold - proves to be fertile ground for experimentation. Simple, effective, memorable. I loved it.

Undertone (1972) - The worst of what I watched. A creepy sadsack sits at a table, talking to the camera while rubbing his legs (hidden from view). He imagines there's a woman under the table rubbing his legs, running her hands up his thighs. Up his thighs and caressing them. Is he getting off on this? Later he imagines there's no woman. Then he imagines there's a woman again. This continues for 9 minutes. Maybe he's vocalizing the implications of his movements/posture, but the result is like watching a lonely old man having phone sex with himself. The complete video is 37 minutes and it must be pure hell.
