First Conference on Video-Obsolescence

This event is part of a project of Videographic Archaeology in the Basque Country, an attempt to recover some of the video production created in the eighties and nineties that remains in an obsolescent limbo. Through the conversion of the video signal the works are opened to a second or third life.

The analog video experienced a moment of explosion during the eighties when artists and not artists began to experiment with the medium. The intentions were diverse. The results, of all kinds. The boom of video festivals resulted in an overproduction of video-works that today remain trapped in their original containers.

These first conference on Video-Obsolescence recover part of the work of the collective dna, group formed by people with diverse interests (experimental music, video, etc.). Thanks to Luix T. Ran, member of the Tactical Line, you can see some unpublished pieces after thirty years. But not only that. The action is proposed with the intention of recycling and re-signifying the live works.

Project directed by Pablo Maravi Martínez, researcher of the AKMEKA group (IT 1278-19) of the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of the Basque Country (UPV-EHU).

Collaboration of artist and performer Ramón Churruca.
