Dictionary of Video Artists of Ecuador

The Prince Claus Fund supported Nuevos Medios Ecuador for the publication of Diccionario de Videoartistas del Ecuador (Dictionary of Video Artists of Ecuador), a book on Ecuadorian video artists, which the Fund has recently received from the organisation. The organisation is an independent archive established in 2003 due to the need of researching Ecuadorian video art. 

The publication will compile and serve as a guide to the most prominent video artists of Ecuador, with an introduction text written by Professor Laura Baigorri and a brief text about the history of video art in the country written by Ma. Belén Moncayo. It is an important publication, because having printed material on Ecuadorian visual artists will be a significant contribution for the total exercise of the contemporary art of Ecuador.

The book exists of three introductory texts; the first one is from the Ministry of Heritage (Ecuador), the second one belongs to Professor Laura Baigorri Ballarín, and María Belén Moncayo AANME archive’s director writes the third. Each inside cover contains a DVD which contains the hundred videos that belong to the works of the artists and collectives that make up part of this book. The artistic works show part of the experimental audiovisual creation in Ecuador since 1929 until 2011, where exists a diverse mapping: diversity in the subject, in the video duration, in the experimental sub-genres, in the country of origin, and in the age of the artists and collectives.

The Prince Claus Fund supports the project because it tracks back and documents the history of video productions in Ecuador, which contributes to stimulate other countries and organizations to document their video/film heritage and to create networks of contemporary agents.

You can find the publication in the documentation centre in the office of the Prince Claus Fund (opening hours: Monday-Friday 10.00 – 17.00). More information about the book can be found here.
