At first sight the work of a VJ looks very much like video art. It uses almost the same equipment and therefore has a similar aesthetic. On the other side, it has also taken over a lot from performance - particularly the live creation of an experience in which various senses are stimulated simultaneously. Many VJ’s themselves seem to compare their work particularly with the latter, and at the same time see a direct connection with the rise of techno music and the video clip in the 1980s.

The exhibition Wonderwall will be showing works from the collection of the Netherlands Media Art Institute. These works provide a historical frame from video art, that reflects the aesthetic of many contemporary VJ performances.
