This anthology explores the pioneering period of the British video art form that has become a hallmark of contemporary art. Drawing on interviews, ephemera, archived tapes, and installations from the period, Rewind brings together leading scholars in the field to lay the groundwork for a history of the people, activities, institutions, and interventions that made video art the one true avant-garde genre in 20th-century Great Britain.
