Artists’ Video Online

There is so much stuff out there- it’s overwhelming! So below Here are some suggested links to some recommended sites to watch Artists Film and Video online.

First off, I strongly recommend that you sign up for regular e mail listings from LUX – to be informed about all the latest SCREENINGS of artists film and video in London, and many gallery shows of moving image work. This is easily achieved HERE

If you find more great places/collections of work you would like to recommend- please post about this on the front page of this PTBM blog!

Tank TV

Since 2003, has been the pioneering online platform for artists’ moving image. is dedicated to offering curated programmes online and in our Central London exhibition space: always free and available to everyone.


UBUWEB is – A vast collection of moving image and sound works, texts and critical writings. Quite unique and a real treasure trove, though you’ll have to search around once there as it has quite a linear way of listing things. Their film+video section his here

UBUWEB Describes itself as ‘a completely independent resource dedicated to all strains of the avant-garde, ethnopoetics, and outsider arts’. Have also seen it cited as ‘the YouTube of the avant garde’, which seems about right.


The Animate Collection is an internationally renowned resource housed on A digital archive of films, video interviews, documentation, tests, essays and interviews, it includes works by many key figures in contemporary British animation, visual and new media artists


Here is a great blog of provocative contemporary and historic video work on line to view- compiled by the excellent film maker Steve Reinke.


The trick is, there are lots of great Video artists who want the public to see their work online, who use Vimeo as a platform to put up complete, properly uploaded works, (better than crappy bootleg copies on UTube) Here are some of my favourite suggestions:
