Steina and Woody Vasulka: Video Pioneers

Atelier Nord has the pleasure of presenting a selection of work by Steina and Woody Vasulka at Cinemateket in collaboration with The Dream That Kicks. The screening marks the closing of the exhibition IT’S ALL ABOUT THE SIGNAL, held at Atelier Nord ANX. Atelier Nord’s Artistic Director Ivar Smedstad has made a selection from Steina and Woody Vasulka’s extensive body of work, which spans more than 50 years.

Steina (b. 1940, Reykjavík) and Woody Vasulka (b. 1937, Brno) are central figures in the history of video art. They were among the first artists to show interest in the medium in the late 1960s, when the first commercial video camera (Sony Portapak) became available. Their body of work – together and individually – spans analogue and digital investigations of the materiality of the video signal, optical machine installations and performance.

The Dream That Kicks is Cinemateket’s screening concept for art film, avant garde film and video art, curated by Greg Pope – artist, lecturer at KHIO and Cinemateket-machinist.

Tickets for Steina and Woody Vasulka: Video Pioneers can be purchased om Cinemateket’s website!
