FOR VIDEO & NET-ART LECTURERS
My name is Concha García. I am the Co-ordinator of VIDEONET-06, an
event of video and Net-Art that is produced by last-year students of
Fine Arts Universities.
The first edition of VIDEONET took place last year and included works
made only by students of Spanish Universities. Due to the success of
the previous edition we have decided to replicate the same experience
this year, broadening its scope by inviting as well students from
Potugal, Mediterranean and Latin-American countries.
VIDEONET-06 is organized by the School of Architecture and Fine Arts
of the European University of Madrid, Spain, and specifically by the
Official Master of Contemporary Art,
http://postgrado.uem.es/listado/arte, which will start next
academic year 2006-2007.
This second edition of VIDEONET will take place during the last week
of September 2006 (25/9-29/9) in the European University of Madrid,
which is located in Villaviciosa de Odón, Madrid, Spain.
As part of the preparation of the event we are contacting universities
that could be potentially interested in participating with us this
1. VIDEO: We would like to propose the participating Universities
to make a 20 minutes video containing the selection of the most
interesting pieces of work of the students from the last years of your
University. We would like to receive them together in a DVD.
In this regard, it is important to stress that we will not make the
selection of the works. This will be your responsibility as
participating university, since the aim is to show the most
representative pieces of the work that is being undertaken in your
It would be good if you could attach a presentation (video or short
text) containing information regarding the works and the authors. This
presentation should not exceed 10 minutes.
2. NET-ART. Each University will have allocated a time span of 30
minutes. You should send us an instruction note to make the guided
tours in Internet, and a brief introduction of the students´ works.
We would like to get from you a maximum of 10 works.
3. DEADLINE. The deadline for the presentation of the works will
be Friday, 1st September 2006.
4. We would appreciate if all the works could be compiled by one
single person before being sent to us, since this would significantly
simplify the reception of the contributions by each University.
The works should be sent to the next adress:
Departamento de Creación Artística
Universidad Europea de Madrid
28670 Villaviciosa de Odón. Madrid (SPAIN)
5. We would exhort you not to use unusual CODECS.
6. We intend to invite several representatives of Spanish
national institutions with international projection to comment on the
works of the students, who are the real protagonists of the event.
Among these institutions we will have the international magazine
LAPIZ, the INTERMEDIAE Programme of the Comunidad de Madrid and the
MNCARS (Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía).
7. No payment will be done for the exhibition, so all
Universities that decide to participate in the event should accept
this condition. The view of the works will be done in the educative
context of the University. We commit to show the works EXCLUSIVELY
WITH AN EDUCATIVE PURPOSE and in the framework of the VIDEONET-06.
Therefore no claims concerning reproduction rights will be accepted.
I thank you in advance for your collaboration and remain at your
disposal for any further information or clarification you may need.
