40YEARSVIDEOART.DE (installation view), 2008.
40YEARSVIDEOART.DE is an initiative of the German Federal Cultural Foundation that focuses on saving, maintaining, and mediating the cultural heritage of video art, which has become one of the most influential art forms of the twentieth century. In summer 2004 the initial selection of works was compiled: Part 1 which ST PAUL St is proud to present with the support of the Goethe-Institut in Wellington.
40YEARSVIDEOART.DE is a panorama of 59 historic but also current works ranging from 1963 up to present with artists such as Samuel Beckett, Joseph Beuys, Valie Export, Harun Farocki, Rebecca Horn, Marina Abramovic and Ulay, Nam June Paik, Rosemarie Trockel and many others.
This event is made possible with the generous support of the Goethe-Institut.
