This is an intelligent and though-provoking collection of essays exploring the concept of the 'pictorial' in contemporary visual arts. When does a painting cease to be a painting? Can a painting be rendered through analogue and digital technologies? Is a moving painting a perversion of painting? Does painting have an inherently performance aspect? The essays and interviews gathered here analyse the potential of the "pictorial as moving image" in our mass media and technology-driven society. With works by leading international artists, this survey challenges our formal and iconographic conception of the pictorial in contemporary visual art as it is redefined by film, video, animation, and performance.
