Pop Pop Video



Pop-Pop-Video was crafted as a working space, where each day Birnbaum re-edited materials selected from broadcast television, past works of hers such as Kiss The Girls: Make Them Cry (1979), the “non-political” Winter Olympics, and the “all-political” presidential campaign. These elements comprised the first major component of Pop-Pop-Video, whereas the second featured an intricate stereo soundtrack that was made collaboratively by seven men and seven women. Selected by Birnbaum, the men created the instrumental tracks that were to be mixed with the vocal tracks by the women. The soundtracks were then intercut with broadcast materials while further dramatizing Birnbaum’s act of re-editing. On March 29, 1980, a special showing of highlights from Birnbaum’s re-edited videos was presented at The Kitchen.
