Video By Artists 2

This is not a mainstream publication, but an ad hoc book; a type frequently seen in the early and mid-seventies. Video By Artists contains several articles (including ones by Dan Graham and Les Levine) and graphic output (photos, histories, resumes and documents) by Ant Farm, General Idea, Dan Graham, Lisa Steele, David Askevold, etc. It contains a useful bibliography of articles in periodicals. It is a Canadian publication, and it should be noted that video was a popular medium for artists in Canada. In fact, the story of the entire avant-garde in Canada in the early and mid-seventies and its impact on video is well worth a long careful look. Consider just the dynamic impact of Michael Snow’s films on later video art, for example.
