“The Revolution Will Be Videotaped” is a network history of the experimental videographers who collaborated across the fields of art, psychiatry, and politics in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It is also a history of the resources videographers drew on, both material and intellectual, including the technology of electromagnetic recording, the practice of mediated self-observation, the metaphysics of collective consciousness, and the discourse of ethereality.
