Diverse Practices

A Critical Reader on British Video Art

Edited by: Julia Knight

Publication date: 1996
Total pages: 392
ISBN: 1 86020 500 3
Price: £ 22.50


Diverse Practices contains newly commissioned essays dealing with topics such as television interventions, video installation, feminist video work, video art criticism and computer animation. Previously published pieces addressing Scratch Video and artists working within the broadcast environment are also included in this book.


The past three decades have seen the rapid and vibrant growth of video art in Britain, but there has been little detailed analysis or critical recognition of this work. Diverse Practices attempts to redress this imbalance by bringing together a collection of essays which discuss various aspects of British video art within a range of frameworks ­ historical, theoretical, critical and chronological.


Julia Knight, lectures in Media Arts at the University of Luton and is co-editor of Convergence: The Journal of Research into New Media Technologies.
