The DVD Study Edition »Record > Again! 40yearsvideoart.de — Part 2« presents 60 outstanding video works by 58 artists and artist groups spanning the years between 1968 and 2008, thus continuing work begun by »40yearsvideoart.de - Part 1« in 2006.

The second edition focuses on the early years of video. Many of the tapes have survived a 25-year period in storage, and thanks to the means of presentation that have meanwhile become available, are now presented here for the first time: since the old equipment has long since become obsolete, the bulk of the video collection was likewise unserviceable.

However, the ZKM | Laboratory for Antiquated Video Systems has devised special equipment for the project, consequently making it possible to digitize over 50 of the different video formats dating from the mid-1960s to the mid-1980s, and to thereby preserve them for posterity.

The resulting footage has a running time of more than 25 hours, and encompasses both old and new works ranging from early art-video recordings of performances, interviews or documentaries on the art scene, to politically motivated works, all of which are presented in this anthology.
