Art & the City
Standing under the motto of "art & the city", CologneOFF VII will represent the hightlight of all until now realised festival editions. More than 150 single channel films and videos by 120 artists/directors packed in 12 thematic compilations around "art & the city" represent a magnificent manifestation of a specific hybrid type of video art, which can be celebrated in different presentation formats.

The 7th festival edition is the most comprehenive one so far, and it’s also the first time, that a festival edition is simultaneously launched online and in physical space on three different venues - Beirut/Lebanon- Budapest/Hungary and Riga/Latvia.
But CologneOFF VII is not standing alone, but will become the 2nd column of the nomadic festival project "CologneOFF 2011/ 2012 - videoart in global context" and will extend and enrich it profoundly.
