A History of Video Art is a revised and expanded edition of the 2006 original, which
extends the scope of the first edition, incorporating a wider range of artists and works from
across the globe and explores and examines developments in the genre of artists' video
from the mid 1990s up to the present day. In addition, the new edition expands and
updates the discussion of theoretical concepts and ideas which underpin contemporary
artists' video.

Tracking the changing forms of video art in relation to the revolution in electronic and
digital imaging that has taken place during the last 50 years, A History of Video Art orients
video art in the wider art historical context, with particular reference to the shift from the
structuralism of the late 1960s and early 1970s to the post-modernist concerns of the
1980s and early 1990s. The new edition also explores the implications of the
internationalisation of artists' video in the period leading up to the new millennium and its
concerns and preoccupations including post-colonialism, the post-medium condition and
the impact and influence of the internet.
