Michael P. Aust and Daniel Kothenschulte curated The Art of Pop Video, and have both devoted years of their lives to cataloguing and preserving thousands of music videos, which they see as a unique and developing art form. In this exclusive interview they discuss the different ‘genres’ in music video, parents and children sharing their favourite videos and their struggles in putting together the exhibition.

Outfit took part in an Open Call in collaboration with Liverpool Sound City to find the best music video directing talent in the North West. The winner, Isaac Eastgate, created a unique, dark vision to accompany the title track of the bands debut album, Performance. In this video interview, which you can see on the right hand side of this page, FACT’s Lesley Taker talks to the band about their work, why they chose Isaac and the importance of music videos.
