The article deals with the relationship between video art with the dadaist tradition, and shows how some of the principles of the creators of the Great Avant Garde were developed in the period when artists started to reach for electronic media as means of artistic expression. References to the Dada tradition have a heterogeneous character within video art. This is due to the multi faceted use of this medium by various artists - for some it served above all as means of recording performance art, for others it became a matter that replaced more traditional materials used in art. Pitrus refers to many examples, e.g. the work of Bill Viola, Nam June Paik as well as Steina and Woody Vasulka.
