ReviewVideos & Films – Collection Pierre Huber

 - Review
The videos of one of the most important private collections of contemporary art.
The entry of video into the collection is emphasized by to simultaneous factors: the opening up of non-Western artistic practices and a strong interest in the discovery of young artists. The video works either generate their own space of projection, or that play with existing space. Or, the works use a projection screen that technoloy thinks of more and more as a both constructive and decorative wall in a private interior. Thus the screen takes the place of a painting or the large-format photography that suceeded it.
