In the late 1960s, when artists began to use emerging media technology to push the boundaries of contemporary art, film, and video, women were on the forefront of that movement, pioneering the connections. Musician/new media artist Steina Vasulka, media artist Amy Youngs, Christiane Robbins, a cross-disciplinary director and scholar working in media arts, and others talk about the use of moving images in their work and the ways they leverage ever-changing technologies to serve their creative processes. Moderated by art historian Jane Blocker. Presented as part of the University of Minnesota’s symposium Wonder Women: Art and Technology, 1968 to 2008, and the Walker’s Women with Vision Festival. Webcast on the Walker Channel (channel.walkerart.org).
