Edited by Stuart Comer and Michelle Kuo. With contributions by Aria Dean and Erika Balsom.

 
Video is everywhere. Since its debut as a consumer medium in the 1960s, video has shaped our opinions, our politics, and our societies. On our phones and computer screens, walls and streets, it defines new spaces and experiences—spreading memes, lies, fervor, and fact. In other words, video has transformed the world. Featuring works from the collection of The Museum of Modern Art, this illuminating exhibition catalogue—MoMA’s first major publication on video art in nearly thirty years—explores the ways in which artists have both championed and questioned video’s promise, some hoping to create new networks of communication, democratic engagement, and public participation, others protesting commercial and state control over information, vision, and truth itself.
 
Lavishly illustrated essays by esteemed scholars and artists—including Erika Balsom, Aria Dean, David Joselit, Pamela M. Lee, Glenn Ligon, and Ravi Sundaram—highlight video’s widely varied formats, contexts, and global reach. Signals is a manual for understanding the present, an era in which video has pervaded all aspects of life. 188 pp.; 323 illus.
