.SCREENS: Viewing Media Installation Art by Kate Mondloch (University of Minnesota Press, 2010)
An investigation how viewers experience screen-based art in museums"Screens" offers a historical and theoretical framework for understanding screen-reliant installation art and the spectatorship it evokes. Examining a range of installations created over the past fifty years that investigate the rich terrain between the sculptural and the cinematic, including works by artists such as Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Doug Aitken, Peter Campus, Dan Graham, Valie Export, Bruce Nauman, and Michael Snow, Kate Mondloch traces the construction of screen spectatorship in art from the seminal film and video installations of the 1960s and 1970s to the new media artworks of today's digital culture.
"What is most provocative and original about Kate Mondloch's approach is that she realizes that screens are both objects and 'virtual windows,' material and immaterial entities at the same time. 'Screens' has not only the potential of being a major contribution to a pre- existing art historical field, but opening up the discipline to entirely new modes of critical enquiry." --Colin Gardner, University of California, Santa Barbara
Kate Mondloch is assistant professor of art history at the University of Oregon.
