    of video

Experimental movies of surprising virtuouso performances - circus, street, avant-garde and cultural, including the Calypso Tumblers, Yoko Ono's performance memorializing Nam June Paik, more monologues by Todd Alcott, and many others. Some have behind-the-scenes coverage and interviews with the performers, and frame-in-frame art videos that are fun to watch.

Beginning when the video medium was brand new, Skip Blumberg's classic videos explore what is unique about the medium to creatively document and expose captivating subjects. "I want to warm up the cool medium of television," Blumberg said in the early days of artists' video recording and tube screen TV sets, and before flat screen TV and the internet, referring to Marshall McCluhan's slogan.

Blumberg is a talent scout for unusual, eccentric, surprising, undiscovered performance talent with a variety of production values and styles of coverage.

His videos about art and artists are artworks themselves, many in permanent collections of art museums around the world.
