GONCALVES, Mauro. Video as Technology and Artistic Expression Medium. Vista [online]. 2022, n.10, e022010.  Epub 01-Maio-2023. ISSN 2184-1284.

This paper seeks to reflect on the emergence of video technology and its use as a medium for artistic expression. Focusing mainly on the period between the 1960s and 1990s, we analyse the relationship between television and other institutions within the cultural-artistic sphere and their role in developing artistic practices through video. Thus, we have established international and Portuguese examples for a plural and diverse analysis. Therefore, this work elaborates on some theories, main ideas and research concerning the role of video and television in late 20th-century society. Special attention is given to some ideological and philosophical traits transversal to the different artistic practices, authors and agents within the contemporary cultural sphere to reflect on some aesthetic elements of the works from this period. Based on a selection of works and artists, this study seeks to explore the social dimension of video, which has often operated as a democratic medium, an instrument of social and political contestation and a medium for the artist's personal reflection. In this way, an approach to the presence and representation of the body in video works and other technical and aesthetic elements is articulated to understand the theoretical dimensions involved in the imagery production of this medium.
