The 2nd International Festival of Audio-Visual Arts VIDEOLOGIA will
take place in Volgograd, Russia in the 1st decade of November 2005.
Artists are invited to participate!
The festival debuted in 2004 and united authors working with
videoart, experimental cinema, animation, VJ works and musical
accompaniment to video. The international competition selection and
hors concourse programs of international & Russian festivals &
curators were demonstrated in the cinema hall for four days. Jury and
audience evaluated official selection videos. Along with screenings
ÄúVIDEOLOGIA 2004Äù included video gallery, theoretical forums,
concerts and performative actions in clubs. Works taking part in the
selection were subdivided into two nominations according to the main
conceptual lines of the festival:
Intersection of video with other arts (poetry, painting, photography, dance);
(V)ideological statement of an artist.
Developing their theoretical and artistic interest in omnipresence of
the aesthetical and the seeming lack of taboos for art in
contemporary culture curators of ÄúVIDEOLOGIA 2005Äù link its key
conceptual lines to the issues of the 1st festival. As the sample of
das Gesamtkunstwerk, integral creative work, audio-visual art
incorporates poetry, dance, theatre, photography and even the
non-spectacular self-criticism. This claim for omnivorous wholeness
is consonant to the events on the present sociopolitical scene, where
alteration has become constancy. The ability of audio-visual works to
underline the multitude of thematic elements & to act as digital
pseudo-equivalent of the endless scope of modifications makes it the
art of kinetic Becoming rather than the art of statuary Being.
Dissonance and constraint caused by constant becoming in love,
politics, theory, production, economy, technology and war are
relieved in cathartic (v)ideological statements, in which
becomes verbal and words turn into images.
