Just as film theory has incorporated essays and manifestos by filmmakers into a canon that also includes critics studying the “new cinematic object,” this publication gathers together a number of artists' writings--which were previously scattered in different publications--in order to revisit and reevaluate the early days of video art (up to 1990, a not entirely arbitrary time span). Adding a critical layer to LOOP Barcelona's 15th edition, Winding the Clock Back: A Contemporary Archaeology of Video, it includes texts by Stephen Beck, AA Bronson, Peter Campus, Peter d'Agostino, Douglas Davis, Jon Dovey, Juan Downey, Jean-Paul Fargier, Hermine Freed, Frank Gillette, David Hall, Takahiko Iimura, Les Levine, Mary Lucier, Muntadas, Nam June Paik, Ulrike Rosenbach, Martha Rosler, Paul Ryan, Francesc Torres, Woody Vasulka & Scott Nygren, Bill Viola and Peter Weibel.
