Max Almy is an artist who has worked with video as an experimental medium since the early 1970's. Within that time, she has used video as a performance, installation, exhibition and broadcast medium. Her work is characterized by a highly sophisticated approach to video technology. Utilizing complex video and audio effects, she creates compelling images which portray critical issues affecting life in the contemporary urban environment.
Max's first major project in 1977 used four monitors to present a series of short narratives. The "I Love You" tape which highlighted the series used four large mouths to methodically describe four stages of a love relationship.
In 1979, Max designed a video performance work, "Modern Times", which included live acting, multiple video images, dramatic lighting and music to portray the life of a modern woman.
The next major project was a multi-monitor large scale installation commissioned in 1980 called "Deadline". The theme focused on stress in contemporary society. On five monitors a man was seen running forward endlessly while at the same time a large mouth encessantly taunted him from across the gallery on a sixth monitor.
"Leaving the 20th Century", a futuristic trilogy of experimental narratives, was completed in 1982. Included in this multi-layered work were computer graphics, digital video effects, voice processing and a synthesized stereo score. Max carefully designed the complex effects to enhance concepts which raise questions about the present and the future.
The 1983 "Perfect Leader" video is a short satiric piece which explores the marketing of a political figure. The piece combines audio and video effects with computer graphics and video effects.
The recent "Work Station" is a multimedia installation typifying the corporate work experience, complete with "training tape", "supervisors" and work "icons". The environment includes video, computer animation, projected slides, music, text, narrative and props. Her latest video, "Lost in the Pictures" is a short experimental work which was funded by a grant from the American Film Institute in 1985. A young man is exposed to numerous images throughout his day and for a moment in time steps into a wild visual dimension depicted with 3D computer animation and digital video effects.
A new video installation, "A Death in Space", 1986, satirizes current plans to militarize space by juxtaposing a romantic vision of space with a contemporary version of the warrior myth, a nuclear laser satellite.
Max Almy is currently teaching at the University of California, Los Angeles. She has received an NEA Fellowship in 1982, the Western States Regional Grant in 1983 and the Independent Filmmakers Production grant in 1984. Her undergraduate degree was from the University of Nebraska and her MFA in Film and Video from the California College of Arts and Crafts. Her work has been exhibited in major museums and broadcast on alternative programs internationally.

Ulrike Rosenbach, born 1943. 1964 to 1969 student of sculpture and advanced studies with Joseph Beuys at Kunstakadernie Dusseldorf. Since 1972 she has been concentrating on video work, action/performance and photography. Starting point of her work has always been (and still is) her own person, her own life and–putting the subject into a larger context- the situation of women in our time and society. Frequently, Ulrike Rosenbach has added the level of cultural history to this topical perspective, that became a vehicle of reflection. Cliches and traditional images of women are used to visualize tied-up structures and the attempt at self-determination through the artist's action.
Ulrike Rosenbach's artistic work is at the same time a mirror of personal affectedness and a tool of reflecting analysis. The situation of the female artist and that of woman in general is brought to a symbolic concept in associatively tied-up pictures. On the path of artistic avantgardism, a "dimension of freedom" becomes visible that Simone de Beauvoir has treated, in 1949, in her phenomenology of the "other sex".
"We, however, raise the question as to the female destination in a different way: We see woman in a world of values and allow the dimension of freedom to her forms of behaviour. We believe that she should have the choice between her transcendence and her alienation in the object."
This tension between transcendence and alienation is visualized and made aware in Ulrike Rosenbach's works- in this sense, they are "feministic" without wanting to be extremely agitative. "Liberation" as Ulrike Rosenbach understand it in her artistic activities, is not so much a matter of "constant preaching" than an act of avantgarde practice. In her works, freedom is experienced as the overcoming of aesthetic norms, questioning of rigid cliches and as conveyance of artistic sensitivity.

John Sanborn. Beginning in 1977, artist John Sanborn has been known for his innovative, experimental, and popular creations in the field of video art. His large-scale collaborations including work with Robert Ashley ("Perfect Lines"), Twyla Tharp ("Scrapbook"), Mary Perillo (his producer of three years), Dean Winkler ("Luminare"), Lee Breuer and Bob Telson ("Sister Suzie Cinema"), King Crimson ("Heartbeat"), Moto Sano ("Complication Shakedwon") and Philip Glass ("ACT 111"), his Artist-in-Residency at the Television Laboratory at WNET/13 from 1977–1984, and his on-going search for clues to the secret of "visual humming", all have led him to be acknowleged as a pioneer in the world of Media Art.
John Sanborn's work is exhibited and broadcast worldwide. Exhibitions include showings at the 1985 Whitney Biennial; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the American Film Institute, L. A. and Washington; the Berlin Film Festival; "The Festival of Festivals", Toronto; The First International Video Biennale, Tokyo, Japan; the Pompidou Center, Paris; the Locarno Video Festival, Locarno, Switzerland; the Institute of Contemporary Art, London; the San Sebastian Film Festival, Spain; the "Immagine Elettronica" Festival, Bologna, Italy, and Danceteria, a New York niteclub, whose celebrated, and often imitated video lounge Sanborn co-founded.
His television work has been broadcast over television systems both domestically and abroad, including: NBC, CBS, ABC, and the PBS network in the U.S. Channel Four, England; Asahi, Fuji, and NHK networks, Japan; Antenne 2, FR3, and Canal Plus, France; RAIUNO, RAI-DUE, RETTE-QUATTRO, Italy; Belgian, Dutch, Swedish, and Mexican TV: the USA Cable Network- the David Letterman show; and MTV.
Pioneer Laserdisc is currently releasing a disc of his work for the home market.
Mary Perillo. In 1982 Perillo began freelancing, doing commercials, industrials, music videos. In January 1983, John Sanborn hired her as Associate Producer/Associate Director for Robert Ashley's opera "Perfect Lives" which Sanborn directed. Since that time, Perillo has produced almost all of Sanborn's work, including five music videos. She designed, along with Sanborn, the open and close of a new PBS series called "Alive from Off Center", with music by David Byrne. She also has produced projects apart from Sanborn, one of which, "Let's Break", a breakdancing tape distributed by Warner Communications, was on Billboard's top twenty video list for four months in 1984. Perillo was Associate Producer and post-production Design Consultant for "The Kitchen Presents … " a retrospective of the Kitchen's Avantgarde history featuring performers and artists such as Laurie Anderson, Philip Glass, Robert Longo, David Byrne and Molissa Fenley.
Woody Vasulka, 1937: Born Bohuslav Vasulka in Brno, Czechoslovakia, January 20. Father is Petr, metal worker; mother is Florentina, housewife.
1945: Experiences the end of the war in the suburbs of Brno, Moravia, across from a military airfield. Soon after, collects sizeable number of electro-mechanical parts of war machines. Performs extensive autopsy on them–first encounter with technology. Is forced to play the violin; drops out after one year.
I guess the war was an overpowering experience. I don't think, except video, I've had any other overwhelming experience since … Europe was a junkyard, where we would find great dumps full of war equipment … we could go through them and see the whole anthropology of war.
1952: Studies metal technology and hydraulic mechanics at School of Industrial Engineering, Brno.
1955: Begins writing poetry influenced by the 19th century French poets and by futurist poets, Mayakovsky and Marinetti. Plays trumpet in a combo.
I found poetry to be the most interesting art form. I still find it this way even if I don't practice it verbally. The modes of expression–the transformations–are the most powerful. In poetry you can transform into anything in an instant. That kind of power fascinates me.
1956: Awarded First Prize for Design Research, School of Industrial Engineering. Jazz Critic for Rovnost, a daily newspaper in Brno, in June graduates from School of Industrial Engineering with Baccalaureate degree.
1956–57: Military service.
1959: Involved in short story writing and non-fiction genres. Studies Italian. Extensive work in photography. Designs hydraulic assembly line equipment at Kuria Metalworks Factory, Kurim and Brno.
1960: Moves to Prague. Receives State Scholarship for Higher Education; enters Academy of Performing Arts, Faculty of Film and Television. Begins to direct and produce short films.
I saw film, and I still see film, as extended literature, a kind of literature practiced in space, in a spatial way. At that time I also started to practice prosaic work and I started to write, trying to figure out large formal structures … I saw film as a medium, a material, a dimension of narrativity which was the most modernistic, one still not mastered … With literature I had to compare myself daily with Kafka or others, that was very hard to withstand–poetry the same thing … Film was still very much unmapped, it was free territory.
1960–64: Makes short films at the Academy. Continues writing. Studies English.
1962: Receives Special Prize, Young Directory category at National Festival of Documentaries, Carlsbad. Meets Steina in Prague.
1963: Works during the summer as assistant director, Czechoslovak Television Network, Borno.
1964: Graduates from Academy of Performing Arts, awarded Diploma in Production and Direction of Documentary Films. Dissertation topic, "The Work of a Documentarian in an Unknown Terrain". Travels to Algeria to shoot documentary film. Marries Steina, makes film with her in Iceland.
1965: Emigrates to the United States to join Steina, settles in New York City. Continues studies in English.
I was seeking some kind of status of modernism which was fantasized, again probably through my involvement with literature, and didn't find in Europe. I figured the most exotic and interesting practiced system of modernism was the American system … I wanted to examine that. I had to be sure …
1966: For the next three years, works as film editor with Francis Thompson and later for the architects Woods and Ramirez. Works on multi-screen industrial presentations. Designer and editor for Harvey Lloyd Productions.
1967: Experiments with electronic sound and stroboscopic lights. Meets Alphons Schilling.
Through the experience of film especially after the summer of 1967, when I worked on multiscreen films, I developed a personal theory in which I accused the cinematic frame as being singularly responsible for all narrative tendencies in film, tendencies which I presumed were inhibiting me in working with film. My attention turned against the cinematic apparatus itself. At first I made two, three-screen films (aimless people, peril in orbit), trying to prolongate the horizontal frame. Then I constructed a frameless cinema, using a continuous transport of the film against a narrow slit, recording the environment through a rotating mirror synchronized to the film movement. In that way I made several 360 degree records.
In the summer of 1967 when Steina went to Paris to study violin,I shared a loft for a few
months with Alphons Schilling at 128 Front Street, in New York. Alphons was going through a related crisis but on a much broader scope, since he was dealing with the discipline of painting as well.
We experimented with a camera on a turntable, directed by remote control. Alphons filmed a scene (a person walking in a room), and by mounting the projector in the place of the camera while projecting onto the walls of the same space, he succeeded in tracking the initial image movements.
This space reconstruction triggered a series of experiments for both of us. We felt that our dilemma had something to do with space–the construction and reconstruction of space in time.
We both used the experience of a real space to turn toward interpretation of the underlying codes; for Schilling, leading him to his conquest of binocular principles, for me, to time/energy as an organizing principle of sound and image.
1968: Granted Icelandic citizenship by the Althing (Parliament). Accepts Icelandic name Timoteus Petursson.
1969: Begins exploration of electronic image and sound with equipment from Harvey Lloyd's studio.
That way I got very close to technology. He built a small, cheap studio. That was the first resource for my video experience. About that time, it hit me, that this is the medium in which I wanted to work. I was interested in this metaphysical concept–that an image is an energy system.
1971: Exhibits in numerous video festivals. Receives Creative Artists Public Service (CAPS) grant. Technical advisor to Alternate Media Center, New York. Associated with Electronic Arts Intermix, New York. Assists in the selection and post-production of a video exhibition at the Whitney Museum organized by curators David Bienstock and Bruce Rubin. Receives a New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) grant with "Perception group" (Stema, Eric Siegel and others) under Electronic Arts Intermix sponsorship. Co-founds, with Steina, The Kitchen, an electronic media theater forum for new video, film and music.
Our contribution was that we provided certain mechanism for video, that means the space, and we initiated or made certain paradigms or some limitations to it. We said, "Let's use it electronically, as a place that does electronic music and electronic sounds … " (1)
We could do avantgarde plays and we could do average trash. But we had a collective of people (especially the owner) who were willing to risk alot. So in this milieu, our theatre (or whatever it was), we carried unorthodox approaches as well. To the purists, we were very unpure. At the same time, by a sense of instincts, the true, established, orthodox avantgarde also found it. And if you look at the performance list, you'll see that we introduced people who would eventually become part of the legitimate avantgarde. So, I must confess, wewere very much interested in certain decadent aspects of America at that time including homosexual theater rock and roll, and beyond all that.
We, in fact, enjoyed certain things that were forbidden to the true radicals in the sense of the purity of thinking of Buckminster Fuller and McLuhan. We would be very much involved in the phenomenon of time. And we could incorporate all those things: we took a certain interest in that particular aspect. We motivated (in a way) an undefined creative milieu. As you know, it was purely participatory: people did not pay–they advertised themselves. At that time, the form was fluid and there was no problem. Eventually, it grew and became morestructured–and now The Kitchen is on its own, doing probably much "established" gallery work. The milieu that existed in the sixties and early seventies does not exist in that form. I guess, after us, people had much more exact ideas about what it should be.
We started to show the tapes that we had made-we already had about forty hours of material. So we started showing that material and to play it with music. With presentations we played the monitors–just as the means of presenting it. We did it about three times a week, then we did it twice a week. Then as there were more people to fill in the holes we'd get twice a month and then twice a year. (2)
1972: Receives travel grant with Steina, from National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and NCET at KQED Television Stations. Begins to develop personalized electronic art tools in cooperation with George Brown and Eric Siegl with support from NYSCA.
1973: Participates as film/TV/media panel member for NYSCA. Spring, leaves The Kitchen. Fall, moves to Buffalo.
1974: Takes position of Associate Professor, Center for Media Study, SUNY, Buffalo. Investigates computer-controlled video image research. Buys Rutt/Etra scan processor and begins to experiment with it.
Compared to my previous work on videotape, the work with the scan processor indicates a whole different trend in my understanding of the electronic image (3) The rigidity and total confinement of time sequences have imprinted a didactic style on the product. Improvisational modes have become less important than an exact mental script and a strong notion of the frame structure of the electronic image. Emphasis has shifted towards a recognition of a time/energy object and its programmable building element–the waveform.
1975: Makes ten tableaux of stills on waveform codes in electronic imaging. Begins to build "The Vasulka Imaging System", a digital computer-controlled personal facility.
In this time the work entered the most complicated grounds. Many aesthetic values had to be thought over and the question of individualism, creative process, team work, development and possession of tools, acquisition of new knowledge; all these became the invisible work investments which perhaps should bring some result later.
1976: Receives NEA grant for production of film series, "Recorded Images". Included in The Museum of Modern Art's Projects: Video IX.
1977: Recipient, with Steina, of one-year grant from The Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the NEA as artist-in-residence, PBS Channel 17, Buffalo, Prepares and edits video works for presentation through television broadcast in six, one-half hour segments.
1978: Makes eight tableaux of still photographs titled"The Syntax of Binary Images", published in the Summer issue of Afterimage Magazine.

Robert Ashley is known as a pioneer in the development of largescale, collaborative performance works and new forms of opera such as THAT MORNING THING and IN MEMORIAM … KIT CARSON. Landmark recordings such as SHE WAS A VISITOR and IN SARA, MENGKEN, CHRIST AND BEETHOVEN THERE WERE MEN AND WOMEN, have pointed the way to new uses of language in a musical setting. His current works, operas for television entitled PERFECT LIVES and ATLANTA (ACTS OF GOD), are continuations of his long-time interest in and use of visual media to express musical ideas.
Robert Ashley was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1930 and educated at the University of Michigan and the Manhattan School of Music. He studied and worked at the Speech Research Laboratories at the University Of Michigan (psychoacoustics and cultural speech patterns), and was employed as a Research Assistant in Acoustics at the Architectural Research Laboratory. His studies in composition were with Ross Lee Finney, Leslie Bassett and Roberto Gerhard at the University of Michigan, and Wallingford Reigger at the Manhattan School of Music.
During the 1960's, he was a co-organizer of the ONCE Festival, the annual festival of contemporary performing arts in Ann Arbor which, from 1961 to 1969, presented most of the decade's major artists. He organized and directed the legendary ONCE Group, a music-theater collaborative that toured the United States from 1965 to 1969.
Relocating to California in 1969, Ashley became Director of the Center for Contemporary Music at Mills College (Oakland), where he organized a world-renowned public-access music and media facility. (He left this position only in 1981 when he moved to New York.) From 1966 to 1976 he toured throughout the United States and Europe with the Sonic Arts Union, the composers' collective that included David Behrman, Alvin Lucier and Gordon Mumma. During 1975 and 1976 he produced and directed his first television opera, MUSIC WITH ROOTS IN THE AETHER (video portraits of composers and their music), which documented the work and ideas of seven major American composers and which has since been shown worldwide in closed circuit installations. It is currently being edited for television broadcast under a grant from the NEA Media Arts program.
In 1978 the Kitchen (NYC) commissioned PERFECT LIVES, an opera for television in seven half-hour episodes. The series was purchased by The Fourth Channel (Great Britain) and was completed for television in August 1983. It was first broadcast in Great Britain in April 1984. He is presently working on a 90-minute television program entitled ODALISQUE which is based on his opera, ATLANTA (Acts of God), and writing a quartet of operas for stage and television entitled NOW ELEANOR'S IDEA. The first of the quartet, IMPROVEMENT (DON LEAVES LINDA), will be part of the National Institute for Music Theater's Workshop program in the late fall of 1985.
Robert Ashley is the subject of a chapter of John Rockwell's recent book, ALL AMERICAN MUSIC (Knopf), and of one of four films, with the series title FOUR AMERICAN COMPOSERS, by British filmmaker Peter Greenaway about composers making contemporary musical theater. His recorded music is available on Lovely Music, 1750 Arch, Giorno Poetry Systems, CBS Odyssey and other labels.
Shigeko Kubota is a well known "Fluxus" artist and comes from a sculpture background which she studied in Japan. She originally moved to New York to participate with the "Fluxus" artists in the early sixties, there she met Nam June Paik and started to work with video making as one of the first women to use the medium. Her work focuses in video sculptures and installations, early video series of works based on homages to Marcel Duchamp and later landscape studies influenced by Monet, built into video sculptures.
Marie Jose Burki. The young swiss sculptor, MARIE JOSE BURKI, based in Geneva, won the award at the International Video Festival of Locarno in 1986 for the tape "An Elephant Never Forgets". Besides one channel tapes she created multimedia installations by using the representation of animals as metaphors for human situations, objects, video and computers.
Paul Garrin, born in 1957, studied with Paik and became a fully competent expert in the technical possibilities of video and cooperated in many productions with other artists, musicians, designers. He will assist Paik's production in Vienna. He has built a reputation through participating in several international Video Festivals. He is now teaching at the "New School for Social Research" in New York.

Romy Haag. Her first experiences with show business were made as a clown in the "Strassburger Circus" in Scheveningen. There, Romy guided through the children's matinees. Young and full of enthusiasm, she did not hesitate to elope to Paris with the trapeze artist. There, she was introduced to Paris night life. She was fascinated with "Regime's Night Club" and "Chez Castell" and in no time Romy Haag became the queen of the jet-set. There, she met Jean Marie Riviere, who, thrilled by her deep voice, offered her a show-part in his revue. As Diseuse with a Berlin program she then gave her Paris debut at the "Alcazar".
JONATHAN BLAUNER, an American show manager, offered her a tour; Ronny accepted and presented her Berlin chanson program in Fire-Island, Long Island and Atlantic City. In Atlantic City she fell in love with a young street musician from Berlin, that city about which Romy constantly sang but which she did not know. Without much hesitation the two of them left New York and went to Berlin.
Romy had always sung about the "Golden Twenties", about the metropolis of Berlin, and she had heard a lot about it. But what she experienced there disappointed her. There was no place she could amuse herself as she wished. But with the self-assurance she had acquired and with the strength in her, she had an idea, the idea of her life – as she thought. She sent her street musician back onto the streets and founded a night club of her own, "Chez Romy Haag". It became quite as famous as "L'Ange Bleu" or the "Alcazar". In "Chez Romy Haag", prominence rubbed shoulders. David Bowie, Udo Lindenberg, Zizi Jeammaire, Brian Ferry, Queen, Lou Reed, Mick Jagger – they all came to see Romy.
But nothing was more tedious to Romy than the foreseeable and she dreaded nothing more than being pressed into a mould. When the Berlin Tourist Office started to use her name in advertisements, when the Victory Column was exchanged for "Chez Romy Haag" in the pamphlets, she had enough and sold the night club.
Now, after nine years of hard work in night life, Romy could afford to visit her memories: Den Haag, Amsterdam, Paris, New York, Atlantic City were the destinations on her travels. Everywhere she collected impressions, met new people and had new experiences, not under the pressure of wanting to create, but completely free and unbiased. In New York she was told she should go to Tokyo, the centre of Asia, and there, too, she received inspirations. Her impressions became the basis for a concept called"City in the Night", the idea for a new disc. From Tokyo she flew back to New York where she presented the new concept to the show manager Michael Lang (Organizer of Woodstock and manager of Joe Cocker and Billy Joel). Michael Lang was enthusiastic about the idea and immediately called his German partner Martin Biallas in Berlin. Two titles were produced with the arranger Fernand Saunders, in Media Sound Studio, New York. Immediately afterwards, she went to Berlin to discuss possible future cooperation with Martin Biallas. Biadas proposed the producer Tom Cunningham, an American living in Berlin. In the Hansa Studios, all further titles of the LP "City in the Night" were produced with Tom Cunningham.
After Romy had finally re-appeared after many nights of work in the studio, she made the live show "City in the Night" – a Rock-Shock-Party-Dance Performance with dancers and singers as well as musicians from Berlin, the pace was so breathtaking that there is not time left for consideration. After the show, it's time for amazement; and the audience is exhausted …
