Call for Entries - Deadline: 20 September 2010
"A place for discoveries" – That's what the German magazine art wrote about VIDEONALE, the international festival for contemporary video art. From 14 April to 29 May 2011 the 13th edition of VIDEONALE takes place at Kunstmuseum Bonn/Germany. You can submit single or – this year for the first time – multi channel works created in the past two years for VIDEONALE 13. The entry deadline is 20 September, 2010 (post mark).
Founded in 1984 the biannually initiated VIDEONALE is counted amongst the oldest festivals for video art in Germany and Europe. Besides its high standard of presented works, VIDEONALE reached a widely accepted reputation in its attempt to develop new forms of presentation for video art. Like in the past also at VIDEONALE 13 a team of architects and designers will develop a cutting-edge exhibition architecture to meet the requirements of the reception of media art.
For the 13th VIDEONALE about 40 works will be chosen by an international jury of experts and afterwards be presented in a six-week exhibition in Bonn. The show will open with a four-day festival featuring a variety of events. Starting in late summer the works of VIDEONALE 13 will be shown at further art institutions worldwide in the context of VIDEONALE ON TOUR. The works of VIDEONALE 12 were shown at the video art fair LOOP Barcelona/Spain, at the Museum of Modern Art in Glasgow/Scotland, at INVIDEO festival in Milan/Italy, at Bavarian House in Odessa/Ukraine, at several venues in Taipei/Taiwan and at the National Gallery of Bosnia-Herzegovina in Sarajevo/Bosnia-Herzegovina.
There's no set topic for submissions, but the submitted work mustn't be older than two years (i.e. starting January 2008).
The exhibits will automatically be taking part in the competition for the VIDEONALE-AWARD which will be awarded by an international prize-jury.
