Theatre in Motion, Platform China and partners are proud to announce the first

edition of the Borderline Video Art Festival taking place on various locations

in Beijing, from June 22nd to June 25th 2006.

The aim of the Borderline Video Festival is to create a platform for Video Art

in China. The focus lies on Chinese video art, but international artists are

invited to join discussion, thus generating interaction and exchange.

Through a call for entry, Chinese and international artists have been invited

to create new video work for the festival. We were happy to receive a large

number of entries, and the most interesting works are integrated in the

festival's program.

During the 4-day festival period, Video Art will be shown in all its different

identities and expressions: short film, documentary, one minute film,

animation, video installation, music, performance art, new media and so on. A

total of 13 events will be organized in 7 different venues scattered over the

798 Art District, the Caochangdi Art Community and the Central Academy of Fine

Arts, as well in public spaces. Events ranging from small interventions and

installations over performances to lectures and two group exhibitions. The
