The Hemispheric Institute Digital Video Library (HIDVL) provides a digital venue for documenting the expression of social and political life through performance in the many cultures and political landscapes of the Americas. We have used the resources of digital technology to insure the long-term preservation of this rare material and to make it accessible not just to researchers at NYU but to scholars around the world.
We have created a profile for each artist or collection housed in HIDVL. These artist profiles, compiled with the collaboration of the artists themselves, aim to contextualize the video collections with photos, texts, interviews, programs, bibliographies and additional resources that viewers might find useful. Because the profiles are trilingual, they ensure wider accessibility to audiences around the Americas.
The Search feature of the Hemispheric Institute Digital Video Library is still in a pilot phase. If your search retrieved no results, please click the browse collection tab to see what we have available.
