Steina and Woody Vasulka, Kristin Scheving and Don Foresta

As an in-depth contribution to the “contemporary archaeology of video” prompted by the Festival, this year’s edition of the Talks provided a current reading of early video art. Eminent pioneering artists conversed with curators of peer and younger generations, so to establish formal and conceptual connections between the past and present and explore the influence of avant-garde artistic proposals on contemporary production. 

In this Talk, Steina and Woody Vasulka, major figures in video history, conversed with Kristin Scheving (Head of the Vasulka Chamber, National Gallery of Iceland) and Don Foresta (research artist and theoritician) about their pioneering experimentations with the technological environment back in the 1960s and 1970s, and their contribution to the interface between art and science, art and technology at large.
