Funny, strange, challenging and remarkable video from artists around the world.
For more than 20 years,
Woody Vasulka has been one of the most prominent artists working with video, and his epic Art of Memory, made in 1987, is a complex and challenging contemplation of the violent history of the 20th Century. Using unique special effects developed by Vasulka, newsreel images of warfare are combined with visually spectacular desert landscapes from the south-western United States of America. The innovative soundtrack weaves together speeches, songs and the sounds of conflict.
Series producer John Wyver

This series of films, each made by a different European country, profiles six very different architects who are contributing to the look of the new Europe.
Ireland: Sam Stephenson. No architect, suggests this film, has made more impact on the skyline of Georgian Dublin than Sam Stephenson whose uncompromisingly monolithic office blocks in the heart of the city provoked furious protests a few years ago. He now claims to have turned against brutal modernism, preferring to work in a more classical vein. His mentors for this new stage in his career are Palladio and Sir Edwin Lutyens.
