DOWSER, notes on artists moving image in Scotland is a series of newly commissioned essays, interview transcripts and archival materials which makes available, for the first time, a collated set of resources from which we might begin to plot a history of artists’ moving image in Scotland. Conceived as the necessary groundwork for a critically underreported field, this series hopes to share fragments, positions and testimonies that articulate the development of a now ubiquitous artform with a vivid and unique history in Scotland.
DOWSER is a non-profit project. Each issue is released as an open access online PDF and in a limited print edition of 200. These printed versions will be available for a contribution of £2.50, inclusive of a minimum £2.00 donation to the Scottish Refugee Council (Registered Charity: SC008639).
Issues 1 & 2 of DOWSER have been made possible by the generous support of The Glasgow School of Art and the British Art Network, through their Early Career Curator Group research bursary. The British Art Network is jointly led by Tate and the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, with additional public funding provided by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
