Join us on a journey back in time to find out and explore the history of video installation art. This two-part series offers a fascinating look at the pivotal moments when video installation first emerged in the 1980s and 1990s, staged and recreated at the latest See Me, See You: Early Video Installation of Southeast Asia exhibition.
Through experimentation, these ten Southeast Asian Artists combined installation, performance, audience participation together with video, leading to a new form of art as a result of their interdisciplinary approach.
