The book is a collection of essays, by scholars and curators, which reflect on the symbolic exchange between the spectator and the moving image. The authors analyze this relationship through the analysis of different works by artists, film and video-makers such as Éric Baudelaire, Tony Conrad, Morgan Fisher, Kahlil Joseph, and Vittorio De Seta. The volume also includes an interview with eight members of Videofreex, one of the pioneering US collectives who utilized the video since the late-1960s.

Texts by Malvina Borgherini, Enrico Camporesi, Vera Dika, Sibylle de Laurens, Lorenzo Lazzari, Pascaline Morincôme, and Videofreex
