Point of view, a contemporary anthology of the moving image is an attempt to answer a growing need for accessibility to the work of some of the most important artists working in video, film and digital imagery today. Audiences have come to know and respond to this work through large scaled installations in museums, galleries and international biennials. The artists invited are of different generations and countries, each making a vital contribution to the medium.

Point of view will contain a DVD for each of the participating artists. The DVD will be comprised of a five minute original artwork commissioned for this project, an in depth interview conducted by either Dan Cameron of the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, or Hans Ulrich Obrist of the ARC in Paris, a library of images from earlier works by the artist as well as bibliographical material. Point of view will serve as a point of entry to this work and an ongoing resource that may be used to study, compare and review the work that is coming to define the 21st century. The anthology will be used worldwide; in film and video departments of major museums, art schools and university art departments, as well as by the individual, requiring only a monitor and DVD player.

Point of view will be sold as an anthology of eleven DVDs The first run of the edition will be 1500 copies. By making this an unlimited edition the anthology becomes affordable and accessible to a wide audience. Point of view will be available in six languages: English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, and Japanese.

Point of view is produced by Bick Productions : Ilene Kurtz-Kretzschmar and Caroline Bourgeois and will be exhibited and distributed by the New Museum of Contemporary Art. As a selective survey of the field, Point of view provides the broad range of ideas and approaches typical of the medium, from artists both established and emerging. This anthology is Volume I in an ongoing series in collaboration with the New Museum.
