20th Century Artists - In Their Own Words
20th Century Artists - In Their Own Words is a collection of film and video that documents the work and lives of artists. The artists's voice is present in all the selected material. In art criticism, with its focus on the trajectory of art historical movements, the artist as a unique and individual voice should not be lost. In this film and video collection, the artists' self-presentation may be contextualized within a traditional documentary format or may take the form of non-linear, experimental film-making. Sources for the material are as varied as YouTube, Vimeo, UBU Web, artists' estate websites and museum websites.
