Throughout the history of video art, artists have devoted their work to the the subject of language. Particularly in the 1970s and 1980s, a number of outstanding works were produced which celebrate language and its relation to image, imagination and memory. The NIMk collection holds some of these seminal video works and later ones and presents them in a screening within the context of the current Speaking Out Loud exhibition.
The introduction will present excerpts of Freeing the Memory, 1976, by Marina Abramovic, Primarily Speaking, 1981, by Gary Hill and Studies of myself II ,1973, by Douglas Davis.
