The jury has selected 38 outstanding positions from the more than 1,200 submissions from 76 countries for VIDEONALE.15. A comprehensive festival programme offers an extensive insight into current artistic practice, but also into current discussions of video art and developments on the art market. Numerous events and exhibition projects will enliven both the Kunstmuseum and the City of Bonn during the festival.
Like the exhibition itself, the VIDEONALE.15 festival programme will deal with the competition theme ‘The Call of the Wild’, and will take a closer look at the ‘Wild’ as the description and examination of new and still undefined fields of activity-, image- or conceptual space. The focus will be thereby on the new dimensions which come about as the result of an all-embracing digitalisation.
