The 2nd International Festival of Audio-Visual Arts âŒ VIDEOLOGIA will take
place in Volgograd, Russia in the 1st decade of November 2005.
Artists are invited to participate!
The festival debuted in 2004 and united authors working with videoart,
experimental cinema, animation, VJ works and musical accompaniment to
video. The international competition selection and hors concourse programs
of international & Russian festivals & curators were demonstrated in the
cinema hall for four days. Jury and audience evaluated official selection
videos. Along with screenings âŒ VIDEOLOGIA 2004 included video gallery,
theoretical forums, concerts and performative actions in clubs. Works
taking part in the selection were subdivided into two nominations according
to the main conceptual lines of the festival:
• Intersection of video with other arts (poetry, painting, photography,
• (V)ideological statement of an artist.
Developing their theoretical and artistic interest in omnipresence of the
aesthetical and the seeming lack of taboos for art in contemporary culture
curators of âŒ VIDEOLOGIA 2005 link its key conceptual lines to the issues
of the 1st festival. As the sample of das Gesamtkunstwerk, integral
creative work, audio-visual art incorporates poetry, dance, theatre,
photography and even the non-spectacular self-criticism. This claim for
omnivorous wholeness is consonant to the events on the present
sociopolitical scene, where alteration has become constancy. The ability of
audio-visual works to underline the multitude of thematic elements & to act
as digital pseudo-equivalent of the endless scope of modifications makes it
the art of kinetic Becoming rather than the art of statuary Being.
Dissonance and constraint caused by constant becoming in love, politics,
theory, production, economy, technology and war are relieved in cathartic
(v)ideological statements, in which audio-visual becomes verbal and words
turn into images.
