ARTCULTURE: ESSAYS ON THE POST-MODERN
Edited by Douglas M. Davis
Excerpts from the book:

"The matter of the audience is central to my view of scale..In recent years, artists have even begun to use certain of these disseminating devices (the photograph, the book, the mailer, video) as primary agents of their work, rather than secondary or reproductive. Clearly mode of address and actual encounter condition perception, and this entirely social exchange demands analysis...I myself think that video art will never begin that process (content freed from its obstrusive mode of address) until it become cheap and readily available, via cable television broadcast." Excerpts from "The Size of Non-Size" by Douglas Davis,1976

Video artist and critic (Artforum magazine, New York Arts Journal, College Arts Journal..) discusses the role of video art and the art system among other critical topics on the evolution of post-modernist art. Some of the essays in this book have appeared in article form, others from public lectures.
