This chapter draws several distinctions between old and nouveau art video given the fact of YouTube and how it alters the production, distribution, and consumption of video (art) via Web 2.0 technologies and a corporate architecture. Haunted by dead links and frozen screen grabs, it documents the author’s search for art video on YouTube, which yielded some expected and some unexpected findings. In the process she critically reads the institutional discourse of video art history against this new media platform.

Keywords:   art video, Web 2.0, YouTube, video art history
