Product Details

Praise

Underground by Blake Atwood offers a history of the elusive ultimate chapter in the cultural life of the portable magnetic record in Iran: the informal trade in videocassettes that shaped the experience of moving-image media for a generation. The work is truly innovative in the way it reveals a practice that is not easy to track.”
—Technology and Culture
