ON STAGE: THE THEATRICAL DIMENSION OF VIDEO IMAGE. Translation of On Stage: La dimension scenique de l'image video (Le Gac Press, Blou, 2012). Mathilde Roman. Intellect, Bristol, 2016.

Publisher's description: In On Stage, Mathilde Roman explores the resonances that fields of theater -- stage, decor, space, gaze, and more -- have in the practice of video arts. Using these notions of theater both as points of reference and as a prism through which video installation can be approached, Roman is able to concentrate on a number of questions often overlooked by art historians, theorists, and critics, but offering different points of view. These include questions of exhibition architecture, display, viewer experience, temporality, and the importance of the gaze. Each chapter is articulated around analyses of video installations created by artists of different generations, from Michael Snow to Maider Fortune, and Dan Graham to Laurent Grasso. Translated from French edition and accompanied by a foreword by Mieke Bal, On Stage is an important contribution to the fields of art, history, and film studies.
