Various - Regarding Beauty in Performance and the Media Arts (1960-1999)

Download this at KaraGarga.

This is perhaps the most important and inclusive collection of video art I have ever encountered. Not to say that it includes everything - far from it. But it has a heck of a lot of really important and interesting works from 1960-1999, compellingly grouped under various themes, and as such, represents a virtual treasure trove of rare material. I've left the compilation intact, and ripped it to keep the file size under 15gb. Like the 40 years of Video Art, this is simply a must-see. Even titles like Dara Birnbaum's Wonder Woman, which I previously u/l here, are more complete.

This was the film and video art component of the Hirshhorn Museum's 2000 show "Regarding Beauty" and by all accounts, more successful than the painting and sculpture section. Thanks to the little bird to flew this to me. Let's release this one into the wild!
