Video Art: A survival guide

More dynamic than ever Festival Miden is ready again to present an
intriguing selection from the global production of video art by young and
aspiring artists. A production that the festival follows systematically 7
years now, giving its audience the opportunity to obtain a holistic view
of an art form that is evolving unexpectedly, rapidly and diversely at
this very moment.

The screenings include the themed video art programs “LOL”, “THIS IS WAR”,
“TRAUMA”, “HYPERFORM”, “MONOBALANCE”, “A LAST INSTRUCTION TO THE GRASS”,
“CHARGE A SOUL”, “DARK FORWARD”, “FEELING LUCKY” and “LOCAL CALLING”.
Also, this year Festival Miden will present tributes to some very
interesting foreign festivals, art groups and curators such as Oslo Screen
Festival
(Norway), All Art Now (Syria), Cyberbrothers (Russia), Videoplay
(Argentina) and CologneOFF (Germany).

Furthermore, several interesting parallel events are scheduled, including
a special screening of the themed program “Come to Life” at the
Archaeological Museum of Messenia, an introductive lecture about Video Art
History by Gioula Papadopoulou at the Municipal Conservatory of Kalamata,
while the closing event of the Festival will be the special audiovisual
party set “The New Style”, in which DJ Blue Lagoon from the well-known
Greek art group Kormoranos mixes on stage music and videos that he and his
partner Haris Lagousis have edited.
