Video installation

Video installation is a form of video art. It uses the electronic recording of images via video tape as an artistic medium, playing such recordings on a monitor or screen or on several monitors at once. The pioneering exponents of the video installation were the Korean artist Nam Jun Paik (1932-2006) and the German artist Wolf Vostell (1932-1998). Wolf Vostell was the first artist, in 1958, to integrate a television set in picture of his ("Deutscher Ausblick" ["German Prospect"], Berlinische Galerie). Nam Jun Paik used television sets for a Fluxus Action at Galerie Parnass in Wuppertal, Germany, in 1963.
