For The Record. Politics of Contemporary Video Culture


For the Record is a research project on the politics of video culture by Het Nieuwe Instituut. It investigates how video culture operates as a public space for consumerism, activism and emancipation, by exposing existing realities and by imagining alternatives. The project seeks to document and reflect upon the technologies, spatial design and forms of representation deployed in video culture and live events, and uses public programs and video production as the main research methodology. The events take the form of a public recording studio, visualizing the forms production and postproduction that are deployed in video and that shape our mediated realities.
