REWIND Artists' Video in the 70's & 80's

REWIND is a research project that will provide a research resource that addresses the gap in historical knowledge of the evolution of electronic media arts in the UK, by investigating specifically the first two decades of artists’ works in video. There is a danger that many of these works may disappear because of their ephemeral nature and poor technical condition. The project will conserve and preserve them, and enable further scholarly activity.

Outcomes

1. Archived masters on Digital Betacam of single screen and installation works. Deposited at University of Dundee and the Scottish Screen Archive.

2. A Database of detailed information, technical information, ephemera, reviews and critical texts on the artists & works. Managed by University of Dundee.

3. REWIND | Artists’ Video Collection of DVDs of single channel work for scholarly and public access at the Visual Research Centre, Dundee Contemporary Arts and CARTE central London, and for possible re-exhibition by third parties.

4. REWIND | Artists’ Video Collection of DVDs of installation work for scholarly and public access at the Visual Research Centre, Dundee Contemporary Arts and CARTE central London, and for possible re-exhibition by third parties.

5. REWIND Website domain at dundee.ac.uk and through VADS to include the database of detailed information, technical information, ephemera, reviews and critical texts on the artists & works, paper archive, oral testimony, clips and still images from all the works with searchable index.
