RECENT AND UPCOMING EVENTS ________________________________Conversations at the Edge: Anda Korsts's Video Metropolis
In the 1970s, Chicago journalist and artist Anda Korsts helped pioneer video as a radical tool for art and activism. A key figure in the guerrilla television movement, she worked on a series of media exposés as part of the national video collective Top Value Television (TVTV) and founded Videopolis, a Chicago organization that put video in the hands of everyday people. She also produced hundreds of tapes, many in collaboration with makers around the country, including a groundbreaking television series called It's a Living, inspired by Studs Terkel's Working. The event features videos and television clips from across Korsts's career and a discussion of her continuing legacy today.
Followed by a roundtable with documentary filmmaker Judy Hoffman, Media Burn Archive Founder Tom Weinberg, and Executive Director Sara Chapman
