Youtube Killed the Video Star

October 17, 2008


This open forum examines the effect that online video has on the creation 
and distribution of video art. Has the dream of the ‘democratic medium’ finally

of ‘art’? Is this good or bad, how are artists and distributers responding, and
what does the future hold?
