New Contemporaries Moving Image 1968 – 2010

01-bnc-lux-dvd-4

Produced to coincide with New Contemporaries’ 65th anniversary, this compilation selected by artists Ed Atkins, Harold Offeh and Catherine Yass, reveals the rich history of artists’ moving image in New Contemporaries between 1968 and 2010. Accompanying the compilation is a publication with contributions from Anna Kontopoulou and Mike Sperlinger, as well as Nick Danziger, Heather Phillipson, Aura Satz and Greta Alfaro, providing a fascinating insight in to the radical beginnings of artists’ moving image and its contemporary importance within the UK today. Copy-editing the various conversations and texts, I learnt a lot about how the history of New Contemporaries – as a platform raising awareness of and providing a platform for new, emerging artists – is inextricably linked with the evolution of film and video as artistic mediums, and therefore a platform like LUX.
