Video Becomes Us

2018, 5 x 10 min, Documentary Series for ABC iview

From the video art pioneers of the 1970s experimenting with Sony Portapaks to the current generation of artists exploring VR technology, Australian artists have long embraced video's radical potential. This 5 x 10 min series will explore the different ways that internationally exhibited artists including Susan Norrie, Vernon Ah KeeChristian Thompson, as well as Soda_Jerk, Xanthe Dobbie, The Kingpins, Darren Sylvester, Reko Rennie, James Nguyen, Caroline Garcia, Club Ate, Joe Hamilton and Angela Tiatia  have utilised the medium as a means for artistic expression and political agitation. Directed by video artist Kate Blackmore (THE GLASS BEDROOM) and hosted by video artist Eugenia Lim, this series will investigate what these works say about Australia both past, present and their vision for our future.
