MONOGRAPH: Bulgarian video art

“Bulgarian video art. Documentary strategies and socially critical aspects” is a monograph by Ana Karaminova. The subject has received only little attention in art history yet. Drawing on building blocks of history, art and film studies the author develops an universal model of video art which enables the perception of images as an aesthetic object, but also as space for energy and thinking as well as a historical and emotional source. Exemplary work analysis, extracts from time witness interviews and also the contextualisation of the examined works in the international art scene visualises the relationship between social policy and art. At the same time the analysis demonstrates, that the use of national categories is disputed or misunderstood in the postmodern era.
