The ZKMs (Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe) video collection encompasses 1,400 titles, making it one of the largest and most important archives of its kind. In this book, cross-disciplinary essays place the work of the protagonists represented in the collection in a chronological and artistic context, in the process providing an overview of the development and history of video art in general. Descriptions of exemplary videos analyze visual vocabulary and make it easier for the interested layman as well as the expert to comprehend the full meaning of the works. A list of all titles in the ZKM collection as well as a detailed bibliography on the various artists and works contribute to making this publication an indispensable reference work.
