Above: REpresenting: The Art of Documenting Art. A new video series.

Forms of documentation inevitably mediate the work of art, after the fact.

Through interviews and case studies with SAIC faculty and students, this series of videos addresses fundamental questions about the documentation of art.

Watch the videos on Vimeo or checkout the DVDs from the Flaxman Library.
