Abstract
The Video Show: A Festival of Independent Video and the events that followed this exhibition, which took place at the Serpentine Gallery, London, 1975, will provide an historical context to consider the ongoing and complex relationship between art and activism, which surrounded the use of video since its arrival in the United Kingdom in the early 1970s. ‘Artist video’ on the one hand and ‘community video’ on the other, will be framed by the actions of London Video Arts (LVA), who formed to support artists working with video and the Association of Video Workers (AVW), who formed to support people working with video on a not-for-profit basis.
