Exhibition: Schweizer Videokunst der 1970er und 1980er Jahre – Eine Rekonstruktion, Kunstmuseum Luzern

The exhibition presents the beginnings of video art in Switzerland and how the various strands developed further until the end of the 1980s. Twenty video installations are shown that originally had often only featured for a few days in exhibition rooms, at trade fairs, or during festivals, as well as thirty videotapes. The exhibition is based on a collaboration with the research project AktiveArchive. A thoroughly researched history of Swiss video art has yet to be undertaken.
