How do we use video on the internet? The Museum of the Moving Image’s exhibition “The New Genres: Video in the Internet Age” surveys the most significant and influential internet video genres that have emerged over the past two decades, during the YouTube era. The exhibition includes hours upon hours worth of footage categorized into groups including vlogs, ASMR, structural remix, unboxing and much more.
Supplementing the exhibition, a selection of explainer videos produced by Polygon will be projected in the amphitheater and an exhibition catalog produced in association with Real Life magazine will also be available. Additionally, a screening series tied to the “The New Genres” will begin on May 5 with “Presenting Princess Shaw,” directed by Ido Haar.
Organized by Jason Eppink (Curator of Digital Media, Museum of the Moving Image) and Associate Curator Sarah Ullman.
