PEER BODE: A RETROSPECTIVE

VISITING FILM/VIDEO ARTISTS & SPEAKERS SERIES
FALL 2020 Binghamton University

In a career spanning over 4 decades, video artist Peer Bode has created an extensive body of work that investigates electronic media events, active perception systems and culture. A graduate of Binghamton University’s Cinema Department, Bode studied with Ken Jacobs, Larry Gottheim, Nicholas Ray and Peter Kubelka, and later with Woody and Steina Vasulka, Paul Sharits, Tony Conrad and Hollis Frampton at SUNY Buffalo’s Media Study Program. Bode worked at the Experimental Television Center (ETC), which his lifelong mentor and friend Ralph Hocking established in Binghamton in 1970. At the ETC, Bode made his seminal early works while assisting and collaborating with the video artist and engineer David Jones, whose “Jones Frame Buffer” became a signature processor within Bode’s oeuvre. His work has been widely exhibited nationally and internationally at venues including MoMA, Anthology Film Archives, the Whitney Biennial, the European Media Art Festival (Germany), Impakt Film and Video Art Festival (the Netherlands), Viper Festival (Switzerland), among many others. A key figure of the Owego and Alfred schools of video arts, Bode headed the Video Arts Program at the School of Art and Design, NYSCC at Alfred University, where he co-founded the Institute for Electronic Arts (IEA).

Recent prints by Kathryn Vajda are included in the exhibition “Flickering at the Edge of Anthropocene,” on view at Blockford, Columbus, Ohio, October 2 through November 21.
