Derived from the AHRC-funded research project “REWINDItalia,” the publication aims to bring the seminal Italian early video experimentation back into the international spotlight. Italy was a vibrant center of video art production and exhibition throughout the 1970s and 80s. This early experimentation attracted artists from all over the world and laid the foundation for video art. However, since then, early Italian video art has received only scant international exposure. Its contribution to the history of video as an art form has for too long escaped the recognition that it so unequivocally deserves.
