7th international video festival videomedeja
April 25th - 27th Novi Sad

subject: videobeat
 >>>>>>>The videobeat term is correlated with many issues; in this case, it
refers to various analytical approaches to the theory of history and
development of video art. Videobeat is equally correlated to the future and
to the past; to the very beginnings, from the moment of technological
discovery of the image signal and its primary usage for military purposes,
and then, to the implications of further utilization and development on the
wider, sociological, political and ultimately cultural level. We observe the
effect of the video in the sense of a mediator, through all of its
transformations, from the instrument for objective conveyance of events and
situations, all the way to the almost revolutionary understanding of its
potentials for the most diverse visual expressions and experiments.
While moving forward the margins of perception and every day technology, the
video intentionally maintains the distance in relation with limitations
imposed by the language of the film, whereas the emphasis is still put on
freedom of choice and personal expression in circumstances of absolute
technological democracy.
The videobeat subject matter implies an effort to determine the status of
video art today, especially the position of this form in relation to other
forms of visual expression, as well as to the media resources which exist in
our immediate surrounding. One of the goals defined in this way is to answer
the exceedingly frequent questions of this field: Is this a transformation
of video art into a new form and how can we be sure that the transformation
is not going vice versa? What kind of new media is this about, what are the
new development trends? Is video disappearing, i.e. becoming lost in times
which promote pure digital forms? Most interesting is the question whether
the new media and the whole digital visual production are nothing but a very
logical progress of existing video aesthetics?
