Call for Video Works – Forgetting in the Digital Age

Call for Video Works – Forgetting in the Digital Age

About the Festival:
This will be the fourth year of Print Screen, Israel's International Digital Culture Festival. Just as the "PrintScreen" function captures a screenshot of a computer, so too does the festival capture a contemporary screenshot of life in the epoch of new media.

The festival draws together artists, technologists and digital culture researchers for four days of programming at the Holon Cinematheque in Holon, Israel. Print Screen includes a wide variety of films, contextual programming, interactive presentations, master classes with international artists, workshops, lectures and panel discussions.

In 2013, more than 2,000 participants took part of the screenings and activities. Notable guests included Evan Roth (US), Johannes Grenzfurthner (AU) and Yossi Vardi (IL). More at http://www.printscreenfestival.com.

About the video program:

The theme for 2014’s Print Screen festival is "Forgetting": an examination of how memories are formed, stored, and sometimes lost in the age of new media. Questions explored will include: how does the network affect the experience of memory? Do we have the ability to forget -- and the right to be forgotten -- in a world of unlimited memory? In what ways can one escape virtual recording? What is the place of the one-time event -- that is, the unique, singular occurrence -- in a world where every aspect is documented in the database? And, how is loss experienced in a networked era? Does the network allow for eternal life?

This is the first year that Print Screen will explore this theme through a curated program of video works. Works that touch on the following themes will be especially considered:
• Memory, recording, and recollection in the digital world
• Forgetting, loss and amnesia
• Invisibility to the database (including the ability to disappear)
• Death in the age of new media
• The promise of eternal, boundless recollection
• Unique, one-time happenings in the face of digital documentation

Please submit works that are 10 minutes or under. Works will be selected according to their merit, complexity and depth of the concept.

Send an email to printscreen2014.video@gmail.com with the following:
• Name + nationality of artist(s)

Aberrations of Time

Location:
Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel

ABERRATIONS OF TIME
a video art show
december 4, 20:30
lilienblum 14, tel aviv-yafo, israel

A fundamental trait of the human self is its continuum experience of space and time. But aberrations in time are boundless: any work that is significant in the present changes the past. Aberrations in time are fantastically alluring —­­ especially in the present moment, in which ideas of the future have dramatically changed into what Bourriaud has called our complete “loss of confidence in the ideas of the future.” Today’s future is seen only in yesterday’s science fiction. Today’s future can only be accessed through the past.

Works by Cylixe (DE), Brian Patrick Franklin (US), Aaron Henderson (US), Nupur Mathur (IN), Didier Morelli (CA), Roee Rosen (IL), Soda_Jerk (AT), and Daniel Terna (US)

Curated by Liat Berdugo (IL|US)

Aberrations of Time: Call for Video Works

Lilienblum 14, Tel Aviv, Israel


“A work of art is always present” -- Ad Reinhardt,

A fundamental trait of the human self is its continuum experience of space and time. But aberrations in time are boundless: any work that is significant in the present changes the past. Writer Jorge Luis Borges spoke the precursors of Kafka, saying that many writers existed in a different way after the existence of Kafka, after Kafka’s writings. Aberrations in time are fantastically alluring -- especially in the present moment, in which ideas of the future have dramatically changed into what Bourriaud has called our complete “loss of confidence in the ideas of the future.” Today’s future is seen only in yesterday’s science fiction. Today’s future can only be accessed through the past.

Aberrations of Time explore these thematic elements though a video exhibition. Works that touch on the following themes will be especially considered:
*Momentariness
*Historicity through the lens of the present or future
*Time Travel
*Futurism
*(Anti)Utopianism of the future
*Temporal separations between cause and effect
*Temporal shifts
*Alinearity in time
Please submit video works that are 7 minutes or under.
