Cannot be anything against the wind

Representing the Video Data Bank, Emily Martin (Distribution Manager) will present on the history, distribution, education and preservation practices of the Chicago based video art collection which is dedicated to fostering the awareness and scholarship of the history and contemporary practice of video and media art through its programs. This presentation will also include a screening and discussion of a selection of works from VDB’s collection that respond to the following question: How do various approaches to the creation of moving images reimagine and reconfigure our ideas about natural landscapes, cityscapes, geography, architecture, home, outer space, and the screen itself?
