Video art is often associated with postmodernism, avant-garde, and experimental filmmaking. It is sometimes seen as a reaction against more conventional forms of cinema. The first video art piece was created in the late 1960s by Nam June Paik. Since then, video art has evolved and expanded to include a variety of different styles and genres.

Video art can be installations, single-channel works, or multi-screen pieces. It can be abstract or representational, serious or humorous. Video art often uses found footage or borrowed images and often incorporates sound and/or music.

Video art is not necessarily limited to a certain format or medium. It can be shown on television, in galleries, or online. It can be made with analog or digital technology or a combination of both.

There are many different ways to approach video art. Some artists use it as a way to document and explore the world around them. Others use it as a tool for self-expression and experimentation. Whatever the approach, video art can be a powerful and engaging way to communicate ideas.
