Anda Korsts

Description: Anda Korsts was a Chicago based video artist and journalist. She was the founder of Videopolis, Chicago’s first alternative video space, and worked with TVTV (Top Value Television), a national video collective dedicated to producing accurate, often revelatory, content. This collection contains video from Videopolis’ program, It’s a Living, based on Studs Terkel’s book Working, which focuses on workers in Chicago. This collection also contains footage from her work videoing theater production and performances, including the Artaud Project, a video and performance tribute to the French playwright, performer, and poet, Antonin Artaud.
