The Vasulka Effect
  • Year2019
  • Duration85 min

Artists Steina and Woody Vasulka met in Prague in the early sixties, before moving to New York where they discovered video and later founded the legendary gallery, Kitchen. In the film, the couple are now reaching retirement age, living in Santa Fe. Their entire life has been dedicated to art, as pioneers in music, waves, collage, and landscapes. As lifetime hackers and known as the “grandparents of video art”, their experiments can now be seen as having had a huge impact on a generation of digital artists. With Woody having sadly passed away in December 2019, now more than ever their work deserves to be rediscovered.
