As of today, a history of video art on a European scale remains to be done. This is the mission to which this research program intends to respond. An international network, bringing together both art and moving image historians, artists, protagonists of this adventure, custodians of archives, curators and young researchers, was formed . It aims to collect data on the artists, works and events that led to the advent of this practice, or which counted in its development on the European territory, and to bring to light the specific national conditions of production and diffusion allowing to explain the variety of productions as the disparity of the periods of emergence (1960-1980).
