Founded in late 1980s in Poland. Members included Yach Paszkiewicz, Dorota Podlaska, Bombela Kuich, Andrzej Kuich, Andrzej Wasik. Worked on the border of film and video. Their distinguishing features included a domination of expression over reflection and of spontaneous creativity bordering on pure play (playfulness seemed an essential feature of this current) over meditation, and an abandonment of all interest in theoretical problems. These artists treated the electronic media much more freely than did their predecessors. Paszkiewicz was shooting on Super 8 film and transferring onto magnetic tape. In his case relationship between video and music was evident. His subsequent accession to the world of music videos appears in retrospect to have been a consequence of creative choices made earlier.
