Sample text

From the earliest years of artists’ video, and in parallel with the European and North American context, Giaccari supported and encouraged Italian artists to experiment with a wide variety of forms and approaches, but in comparison to the developments in artists’ video in countries such as the United States and Germany, the experiments of Italian artists in the early period were tentative and sporadic. Nevertheless, these experiments took place and have been collected, archived and catalogued by Giaccari, constituting a valuable record of Italy’s contribution to the development of video art.

30 American video artist Woody Vasulka identified Paik’s ambition for video art as one dedicated to elevating the genre to be of equal status to painting or sculpture, and it became a crusade that was increasingly tied in to his own ambitions as an artist. (Paik) would always take famous people if he could – the more famous, the more desirable. He was the shadow of everybody: McLuhan or Cage, or Nixon. You actually could see the effort of taking the established codes, putting them on television, destroying or altering them by the prescription of, let’s say, Fluxus.

The following year he established the ‘Videoteca Giaccari’ focusing on video documentation of artists’ performances and events as part of a major project entitled ‘Televisione come memoria’ [‘Television as Memory’]. In 1973 Giaccari wrote the ‘Classificazione dei metodi d’impiego del video in arte’ [‘Classifications of the Methods and Uses of Video in Art’] based on his broad experience of a wide range of video related activities including the production of some of the earliest video-documents of artists’ work, the establishment of ‘videosalette’ in various locations, the use of video for ‘real-time’ documentation of music, dance and theatre events, the production of video-catalogues, a video-magazine entitled Video-critica and the establishment of a video lab of the history of art.
