Digital Archive of the New York Women’s Video Festivals
A project made with the Analog Archive Tool from the VHS Archives Working Group.
My project aims to create a digital archive of the 1970s New York Women’s Video Festivals (NYWVF). Founded by Steina Vasulka and organized by artist Susan Milano, and coordinated by Ann Volkes and Shridhar Bapat, among others, the festivals represent a significant, but largely forgotten moment in feminist media. Originally hosted by the Kitchen, an avant-garde intermedia art venue, the festivals were eventually moved to the Women’s Interart Center, a hotbed of feminist art and politics in Hell’s Kitchen.
