Involving extensive fieldwork in various European archives, the article examines women's engagement with film and video as art across diverse spaces of non-western Europe. The article pursues an original angle by discussing Estonia, Hungary and Greece in the same context. The aim is to displace the exclusive function of the former 'eastern' bloc (masking differences between discrete 'eastern' realities) as the token European periphery with regard to the belated emergence of feminist politics in media arts, seeking to mobilise instead a dialectical reading of diverse European 'others'. The essay attempts to challenge the domination of western geographies in media histories, articulating a number of theoretical concerns that can be seen to underpin an alternative feminist history of European film and video art. It is one of the first articles to argue for the need of a comparative feminist study of European media art histories and to call attention to film and video art in terms of spatial politics rather than questions of temporality.
