Book Description

The book of the exhibition: This is Not a Love Song: Video Art and Pop Music Crossovers (Nov 25, 2015–Feb 7, 2016)

The exhibition book traces the genealogy of the relations between video art and pop music from the 1960s to today in which video art and pop music crossed roads. The catalogue features a substantial essay on video art and pop music relationship by curator F. Javier Panera Cuevas. The five chapters in the catalogue Art in Pop, Pop in Art, Hysteria and Religion, ‘Non-Musicians’ vs ‘Non-Artists’ Rock and Conceptual Art, Rock and Its Double: Pop Music as a ‘Toolbox’ and Dance Music Politics present a deeper look into the works in the exhibition.

This is Not a Love Song suggests that the relations between music and the visual arts force us to reconsider another history of art, in which musicians and artists can position themselves either as actors in the hegemonic cultural system or as critical radicals whose traces, as Greil Marcus would say, can be as intense and as short-lived ‘as a lipstick stain that is removed but leaves a profound imprint on our memory.
