In the Beginning... There Was the Electron

Psychedelic Formalism and the Birth of Video Art at The National Center for Experiments in Television

Film Studies Lecture Series

Ohio State's Program in Film Studies offers students and the campus community the opportunity to think historically and critically about the entire culture of global cinema. The program partners with the Wexner Center's media arts department on cosponsored lectures and selected screenings.

In 1967, a team of young painters, poets, musicians, and electrical engineers took up residence in San Francisco television station KQED-TV and began work on some of the earliest video art, rethinking what video was and could be in the process. Kris Paulsen, assistant professor in Ohio State’s Department of History of Art, explores the creation of the landmark National Center for Experiments in Television (NCET), focusing attention on an influential but long-neglected body of work.

Cosponsored with Ohio State’s Film Studies Program.
