Barbara London's on the birth of video art
Between 1973 and 2013 London worked at this esteemed New York fine art institution, helping MoMA establish itself as a preeminent position in the field of video art. Her new book, Video/Art: The First Fifty Years, describes the development of this new medium, its key practitioners, and London’s role in documenting and developing the form. In this interview, she runs us through her early studio visits, the schisms that arose in the scene, and how, nearly half a century on from her entry into the art world, she’s working hard to understand what’s coming next.
