ITALIAN VIDEOART SELECTION ON VIDEOCHANNEL


Dates:
Tue Sep 01, 2009 00:00 - Mon Aug 31, 2009

During September 2009, VideoChannel will feature a selection of art videos by Visualcontainer/Milan - Italian video artists, curated by Giorgio Fedeli

http://videochannel.newmediafest.org/2009/italy-feature.html

Curatorial statement:
Memory and identity have been major issues in videoart investigation in the last decade of the 20th Century. Since the inception of the “new-economy”, “post-modern” and “virtual reality” era, artists have suffered from a lack of identification and placement within the world, having all the traditional assertions of gender, religion and biological property been cancelled, infringed or mixed-up. Urged by the cyborg and bioengineering promises, during the late 90’s the electronic eye investigated the problem of giving an identity to objects and people within an unpredictable changeableness of roles and denominations, in most cases by simply shooting everyday life just as it was.
At the beginning of Y2K era, challenged also by economy crises, terrorism and immigration flows in and out of mass participation, identity has still to be steadily and continuously looked for in ordinary life. In the last ten years the global world has gotten used to most of the ever-shocking technological and biotechnological innovation: we all have learnt to face blurring biological boundaries on Tv programs and to resort to “fluid” ways of existence and interrelationship thanks to the Internet and daily tech facilities. Apparently, we are more confident with our tools and with our new way of approaching ourselves and the others both physically and - more often - virtually. Yet, something is missing, some part of our self-identification eventually lacks in the complicate puzzle of our (post)modern, contemporary construction.
The videoart world has never dropped the urge for addressing such a topic and now calls for attention in an only apparently less anxious bunch of outcomes. Many are the artists within VisualContainer’s archive who have in fact chosen to face the several disguises of everyday life, trying to ask questions about their - and our - identity right now and in a near future.
Of course, no unique answer can be found from their works but an identifying line of poetical approach - a weapon as we may call it, for the most of them - seems to be fitting to the theme of memory. Again, memory is the mirror in which the artists dare search for their face and body, their ultimate inner skeleton and sensing to the outer world.
Memory can thus become a revelatory physical matching with a parent, a more dramatic real match with a facing counterpart or just a heaping up of faces at the rhythm of most contemporary audio-video practises. Nevertheless, identity can also be sought in the presentation of the past after mixing up with current landscapes, or just through the contact to our very self imprisoned by the jail of our own body or by a crowd. A blink of identity can also suddenly peep in from an astonishing resolution of an ordinary event.
All in all, where we eventually get to is not what/where we initially were at the “identification start” before playing the video: if not a solution at all, this is at least a good place to gather forces and dig into our presence.

VideoChannel came alive when Agricola de Cologne started his global networking project [R][R][F]200X->XP in 2004, as a project environment focussed on new forms of video within the thematical context of “memory & identity”.

In 2005, VideoChannel started the first screenings of selections from the comprehensive video collection in collaboration with media art & video festivals around the globe.

One basic aspect of VideoChannel represents the invitation to curators from all parts on the globe for preparing a curatorial contribution of videos. Meanwhile 18 curators from as many countries joint VideoChannel and their selections form the basis of an extraordinary challenging collections of videos on the theme “memory & identity”.

VideoChannel became meanwhile a project environment of itsown including a variety of aspects, but it still belongs one of the most relevant parts of the global networking project [R][R][F]200X->XP.

VideoChannel is constructed in two parts, a low-tech administrative body, which is containing all textual and documentary information, and a high-tech Flash based body containing basically the videos.

PHILIPP GEIST on VisualcontainerTV


Dates:
Thu Jul 30, 2009 00:00 - Thu Jul 23, 2009

PHILIPP GEIST Monography
30 July - 15 September 2009
Only on VisualContainerTV - http://www.visualcontainer.tv

Visualcontainer is glad to presents monography of Philipp Geist, multimedia and live video performer, on
august till september.
This exhibition is a overview about Geist works: live performance, multimedia installation, festival, etc..

PHILIPP GEIST
A self-taught artist based in Berlin since 1999, Philipp Geist (VIDEOGEIST) works internationally through the
media of video, performance, photography, and painting. In 2008, he projected his video installation Time
Fades across the Piazzetta open space of the Kulturforum in Berlin. In 2007, he screened his video
installation Time Lines on the facade of the museum for contemporary art Palazzo delle Esposizioni in the
center of Rome. His projects are characterized by a complex integration of space, sound, and moving
images. Time plays an important conceptual role in his work, in which this apparently fixed and constant
variable is repeatedly subjected to variations.
Music and sound are central elements of Philipp Geist’s work. He enters into a dialogue with music in many
of his creations, and this influences the speed, the intensity of the effects, the degree of abstraction, the
colorfulness, and also the content of his images. In the course of this process, visual configurations can
emerge that do not necessarily accompany the music, but instead challenge it.
The moving image is not given a subordinate role to the music, rather, the two media enjoy equal status. In
this way, Geist seeks to overcome the dependency of image on music frequently found in the genre of concert and club visuals.

NamaTRE.ba 3
Bosnia&Herzegovina Videoart
Curator IGOR BOSNJACK

Republic of Srpska
Bosnian video art (video Scene:Republic of Srpska) is represented by three varieties: on first place there are
works that refers on recent war and post traumatic elements in society (Dajan Spiric, Igor Bosnjak), but on
the second side there are works that refers on some universal problems and ideas of media and art (Mladen
Bundalo, Nenad Malesevic, Dragana Andjelic), and on the tihrd side there are works that refers to questions
of personal identity and social identity (Borjana Mrdja, Bojana Tamindzija). This selection (compilation) of
video art is a part of namaTRE.ba 3 video project that is some kind of “other” independent scene inside
Bosnia & Herzegovinia that represent institutional art. Those works that are traying to open problems and
question of memory have influenced by war, and post war atmosphere instead of those works that refers on
collective identities and ontological problems which have influenced by artistic and personal trauma.
