Overview

Multi-media charts the development of multi-media video, installation and performance in a unique dialogue between theoretical analysis and specially commissioned documentations by some of the world’s foremost artists. Nick Kaye explores the interdisciplinary history and character of experimental practices shaped in exchanges between music, installation, theatre, performance art, conceptual art, sculpture and video.

The book sets out key themes and concerns in multi-media practice, addressing time, space, the resurgence of ephemerality, liveness and ‘aura’. These chapters are interspersed with documentary artwork and essays by artists whose work continues to shape the field, including new articles from:

  • Vito Acconci
  • The Builders Association
  • John Jesurun
  • Pipilotti Rist
  • Fiona Templeton.

Multi-media also reintroduces a major documentary essay by Paolo Rosa of Studio Azzurro in a new, fully illustrated form. This book combines sophisticated scholarly analysis and fascinating original work to present a refreshing and creative investigation of current multi-media arts practice.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'As much an art book as a scholarly work, Multi-media combines sophisticated, well-informed scholarship with artists’ pages that transcend mere illustration to become a catalogue for a virtual exhibition. In terms of both subject and format, it’s a worthy companion to Kaye’s Site-Specific Art.' – Phil Auslander, Georgia Institute of Technology, USA

'Multi-media develops a stimulating discourse between theoretical analysis and documented art practice. Kaye covers a considerable amount of ground... [and] offers an insightful account of multimedia practices in terms of space, time and subjectivity... The additional illustrated material between the chapters functions as a fascinating oasis that illuminates and facilitates Kaye's discussion. Undoubtedly, Multi-media is a well-researched and highly informative book, which is a valuable resource in the growing body of work on multimedia performance. - Platform

'Notably well-referenced, Multi-media is accessibly written and stimulating. Its creative approach to presenting the original artistic components in the body of analytical text is challenging, thought-provoking, and captures the reader's attention. This impressive compilation gives us an opportunity to look 'inside' the medium of television and video artwork, and will be essential reading for anyone interested in the effect of 'mediatization' of the art world.' - New Theatre Quarterly
