'Collect Digital Video Art' is built around a series of conversations led with industry experts: artists, independent curators, art critics, gallerists, museum curators and directors of video art archives. The book sets out to define the terms (video, digital, new media, moving image) and give an overview of the implications regarding collecting video art today. A broad overview of video art's development as an artistic practice is interlaced with commentary from artworld authorities, giving the art form both historical context and coherence in relation to contemporary art practices.
