Join Professor Elaine Shemilt and Dr Laura Leuzzi in conversation with Professor Laura Mulvey about their new book aiming to recover the seminal contribution of women video artists
European Women’s Video Art in the 70s and 80s is the main output of the eponymous research project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and based at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design.
The book retraces some of the stories of early women artists’ video experimentation in Europe and their achievements, featuring chapters on fundamental case studies of early video artworks, themes, genres and geographical areas. The publication aims to contribute to a reassessment of women artists involvement in early video art and strength their profiles and identities within the art historical canon.
EWVA Book authors include: Jon Blackwood, Maeve Connolly, Cinzia Cremona, Sean Cubitt, Malcolm Dickson, Catherine Elwes, Slavko Kazunko, Marika Kumicz, Laura Leuzzi, Adam Lockhart, Stephen Partridge, Lorella Scacco, Elaine Shemilt, Emile Shemilt. The book is opened by an Introduction by Laura Leuzzi, with a Preface by Laura Mulvey and Foreword by Siegfried Zielinski.
