Latin America has been widely neglected in North American and European history of video art. In fact, not even Spanish video art has taken it into account.
Until now, there have been numerous partial histories written about this artistic practice in each country, but there is not one publication that brings them together. Thus, we have considered it fundamental to give a global view of Latin American video art built through the peculiarities and conceptual divergences of the creative processes of each country.
The publication of these essays aims at filling this gap and it will interest a broad sector of the cultural world, be it artists or researchers. On the one hand, because it exposes both the history and the work of all the emerging artists; on the other hand, because the interest on what is produced at a national level is inevitably linked to and associated with what is produced in other countries that are culturally related, favouring the cultural exchange among Latin American countries.
Latin-American Video Art. A Critical View gives a panoramic and analytical critical view of the trajectory of video art practice in Latin America, bringing together its history and the most recent practices. This book contains a series of essays written by notorious art critics and researchers specialized in video art in their respective countries.
