The Vasulka Effect

Vasulka áhrifin; Hrafnhildur Gunnarsdóttir, 2019, versions: OR,CS, languages: eng

Director: Hrafnhildur Gunnarsdóttir • Camera: Hrafnhildur Gunnarsdóttir, Arnar Þórisson

The life and work of video art pioneers Steina and Woody Vasulka, starting from the late 1960s when they lived and worked in New York. Some have called them the grandparents of both the “YouTube generation” and “video art”, yet seem forgotten by the art world. With humour and serenity, they struggle with their finances and how to leave their media archives to the world. We start to understand the major impact that video had on art and society from the 1960s to the present day - a period referred to as the second renaissance, when media art contributed to the decentralization of art and corporate media. With only a handful of allies, we see them being rediscovered by art collectors and museums.
