This book follows an exhibition curated by Eva Brioschi of video works by thirty artists spanning three generations: Marina Abramović, Bas Jan Ader, Victor Alimpiev, Pierre Bismuth, Candice Breitz, Mircea Cantor, Chen Chieh-jen, Rä Di Martino, Regina José Galindo, Ugo Giletta, Douglas Gordon, Ion Grigorescu, Gary Hill, María Teresa Hincapié, Jonathan Horowitz, Alfredo Jaar, Joan Jonas, William E. Jones, William Kentridge, Anna Maria Maiolino, Ana Mendieta, Marzia Migliora, Adrian Paci, Ene-Liis Semper, Santiago Sierra, Rosemarie Trockel, VALIE EXPORT, Bill Viola, Ryszard Wasko, Jordan Wolfson. In the summer of 2016, these works, a selection of the video holdings of the La Gaia collection, resonated in the austere interiors of a former gothic church in Cuneo, Italy. This volume contains documentation of the exhibition, individual presentations of each work, and essay by Lorand Hegyi which addresses some of the early, seminal forms of video practices.
