In video games there is the concept of an infinite dungeon – an endlessly regenerating death labyrinth. There’s an intimate quality to a structure that remakes itself after each horrible demise and invites you to try again. Dungeons are the study of structures as living things. Their diet is your curiosity, and their luring plumage is gold and gems.  There is another kind of labyrinth — a zone that has been subtly, horribly altered by something beyond human understanding. It has a set of strange rules that must be understood to survive. In this zone, the opposite of survival is not death–it is change. (PB)

The Feminist Origins: Video Data Bank’s On Art and Artists Interview Collection

VDB-TV

VDB TV presents
The Feminist Origins
Video Data Bank’s On Art and Artists Interview Collection
Lyn Blumenthal/Kate Horsfield | 1974 | Total program runtime: 50:47

Tune in to VDB TV, a rotating series of groundbreaking programs presenting essential video art, streaming free for the first time to the general public on the Video Data Bank website. From early media pioneers, to sensational contemporary artists, VDB TV provides unprecedented access to the culturally significant VDB archive of over 6,000 video art titles. VDB TV is curated by prominent programmers and moving image art specialists from around the world, bringing you an astounding range of moving image art.

In April 1974, Video Data Bank co-founders Lyn Blumenthal and Kate Horsfield conducted their first taped interview, an in-depth conversation with art historian and curator Marcia Tucker. During the remainder of that year, Blumenthal and Horsfield interviewed four more notable art world women: Lucy Lippard, Agnes Martin, Joan Mitchell, and Ree Morton. Seen together, these five interviews mark a seminal moment in the history of 20th Century art, a moment in which women artists were increasingly being asked to define and position their practice within the growing feminist movement. In this program, each interviewee personally defines her experience as an artist, and discusses the influence of feminism on her own life.

Keep coming back to VDB TV for more exciting programming. Upcoming highlights include a radical selection from the Videofreex Archive, and an exciting program of contemporary video art works curated by Brooklyn Rail film editors Rachael A. Rakes and Leo Goldsmith.
