<>Surveying the First Decade: Video Art and 
Alternative Media in the U.S.

Video Data Bank is pleased to announce the publication of the DVD box 
set edition of Surveying the First Decade: Video Art and Alternative 
Media in the U.S.  Since its original release in 1995, this 
comprehensive two-volume, eight program package on the history of 
experimental and independent video has only been available on VHS 
tape.  The DVD launch will bring this essential tool for the 
understanding of the development of media arts to a whole new 
generation of teachers, libraries, students and researchers. 

The entire anthology (Volumes 1 & 2) includes more than 16 hours of 
historic video: 68 seminal titles by 60+ artists curated into eight 
programs ranging from conceptual, performance-based, feminist, and 
image-processed works, to documentary and grassroots community-based 
genres. The box set is accompanied by REWIND, a 200+ page study guide 
with curator's essay, program and tape descriptions, extended 
bibliography, biographies and videographies of artists and a guide to 
collections of early video materials.

"The release of this fabulous comprehensive history of independent 
video art couldn't be more timely.  It is especially critical for 
this vital and diverse history to appear now, when there is a whole 
new generation of videomakers and viewers."
--Martha Rosler, artist, educator and critic
