It is not debatable that video has entered the art world in a major way and is now an art form to be reckoned with. No curator, no respectable collector can ignore it – and yet, as visitors, video art often leaves us perplexed, unconvinced. Where does the art world draw a line between cinema, short movies, music videos and art videos? At what point does a short movie become an art work, costs the price of an artwork, is exhibited in a museum? Which poses the ultimate question – what should we expect of video art?
