Video Visionen: Die Medienkunstagentur 235 Media als Alternative im Kunstmarkt
In “Video Visionen: Medienkunstagentur 235 Media als Alternative im Kunstmarkt” Renate Buschmann and Jessica Nitsche present for the first time the decisive influence of 235 Media on the development of video and media art as well as the agency’s distribution, production and mediation strategies since the 1980s. The agency was formed out of subcultures, on the basis of media utopias and in close connection with the music culture of those years. 235 Media has been an important platform for many artists and has both initiated production processes and developed curatorial concepts. For a long time, 235 Media was the only video art distributor in Germany to offer an alternative to the traditional art market.
