50 ANS D’ART VIDEO QUÉBÉCOIS on VisualcontainerTV


Dates:
Thu Nov 07, 2013 11:05 - Wed Dec 04, 2013

50 ANS D’ART VIDEO QUÉBÉCOIS
from 7 November to 4 December 2013
only on VisualcontainerTV
www.visualcontainer.tv

Curators: Fabrice Montal, Claudie Lévesque
of Conseil Québécose Des Arts Médiatiques
Montreal, QUÉBEC

In the frame of the 50th anniversary of videoart, VisualcontainerTV is honoured to present the special selection of experimental and historical videoart from Québec

Curatorial Statement

“It must be said: our historical look at video art in Québec is by no means fair. Born of the clash between what we know of this history and the constraints that emerged — constraints within which we nonetheless worked gladly — it represents a great many difficult decisions. Rather than attempt to compile a respectful inventory of everything that has ever been done, we opted instead for a more structural approach.
The works you see were selected from two sources: initially, the archives; and subsequently, the proposals submitted by Québec production collectives still active today.
From the earliest forays made by Vidéographe in the 70s to the present day, we knew we had much ground to cover. Accordingly, we set out to respect history but keep it to the background, focusing instead on the various parameters that have shaped Québec video art through the decades: experimental fiction, autobiography and performance of self, aesthetic and technical research into the medium, the immediacy of the medium, electronic poetry.
We omitted the documentary stream, including the activism that informed much production here in the 70s (and which, with the advent of digital technologies, is now closer to cinema in the broad sense). The selected works therefore attest to the varying degrees of research and experimentation that have marked the evolution of the art form in Québec.
Certain works also had to be set aside due to restoration issues. The preservation of independent creations is a critical issue that affects the entire media arts community. As they await digitization, many so-called “historic” works remain for the moment inaccessible, existing as they do on obsolete media or being in too fragile a state to use, despite the care taken to conserve them.
For us, this retrospective provided the opportunity to gaze back upon the past from our current-day standpoint. In compiling our selections, we came to realize that many once-celebrated works have held up less well, their evocative power dimmed. As a result, we repeatedly adjusted our sights, omitting works we had initially thought to include.
Creative within its constraints, then, this anthology takes a less didactic approach in the hopes of encouraging a fruitful dialogue between past and present.”

About VideoBabel
The VideoBabel Festival is a project with an international reach, founded in 2009 by Dr. Jorge Mora Fernández, Spain (www.drjorgemora.com), and based in the city of Cusco, Peru. It is a project focused upon the democratization, dissemination and promotion of audiovisual and digital culture in Peru and other regions of the world. More than 500 audiovisual works from different countries have participated in the three annual events held since 2010. In 2012 the festival attracted the participation of 252 videos. A total of 9 cash prizes were awarded by an international jury to Peruvian and foreign film makers in different categories.

Beginning with the 2013 event, the festival will be focused upon innovative expressive languages and include video art and experimental audiovisual production. While the competition is open to all those who wish to take part and is oriented towards artists in Peru and Latin America, a collaboration and exchange program is being developed with events and organizations that share our objectives in different regions around the world. The main goal of this program is, on the one hand, to provide a broader international platform for the diffusion of Peruvian and Latin American audiovisual production, and, on the other hand, to showcase in Peru the latest achievements and experiments to emerge from other parts of the world.

DIGITAL MARRAKECH FESTIVAL – MOROCCO on VisualcontainerTV


Dates:
Fri Apr 05, 2013 00:00 - Tue May 07, 2013

DIGITAL MARRAKECH FESTIVAL – MOROCCO International media arts and digital cinema Festival
An “Arab Media Lab project” initiative

From 5 April to 7 May 2013

Curated by: Abdelaziz Taleb & Abdellatif Benfaidoul
Directors of ARAB MEDIA LAB PROJECT and DIGITAL MARRAKECH FESTIVAL

"Is this only a generation trend? Or has there been a profound change in perspective among contemporary Arab artists in the Arab world? Without claiming to be the new avant-garde, without clear cut attitude, young Arab filmmakers, video and media art artists are exploring paths of subjective expression with a fragile and anxious freedom. They are carving out a new path in their fragile and shifting societies... Since the 1990s, video creation in Arab countries has witnessed constant growth and renewal. The specific political and social conditions of these communities, their deeply-rooted narrative and poetic traditions (written and oral), as well as a decisive presence of music and ritual have all allowed these
works to encompass a very wide-ranging field of experimentation and reflection in which a fascination with technology is mixed with a sense of poetry and rhythm, the use of silence, and the ability to speak to us directly or metaphorically of their individual or communal realities. Inside all these realities ARAB MEDIA LAB PROJECT has initiated DIGITAL MARRAKECH FESTIVAL in order to explore current Arab happenings and at the same time a window for interdisciplinary collaborations and exchange…"
