Erika Balsom (Editor), Reynolds Lucy (Editor), Sarah Perks (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Over the past three decades the moving image has grown from a marginalized medium of British art into one of the nation’s most vital areas of artistic practice. How did we get here? Artists’ Moving Image in Britain Since 1989 seeks to provide answers, unfolding some of the narratives—disparate, entwined, and often colorful—that have come to define this field. Ambitious in scope, this anthology considers artists and artworks alongside the organizations, institutions, and economies in which they exist. Writings by scholars from both art history and film studies, curators from diverse backgrounds, and artists from across generations offer a provocative and multifaceted assessment of the evolving position of the moving image in the British art world and consider the effects of numerous technological, institutional, and creative developments.
