Festival for Video and Time-Based Arts
04.03.2021 - 18.04.2021
The Videonale is one of the most significant festivals for experimental video and moving images. It is an important venue for artists, curators, collectors and the interested public, as well as a platform for discussing current themes and aesthetics of moving images. Unlike other festivals, the Videonale presents the selected works not in a cinema format but in a large-scale exhibition and thus reflects on the possibilities of presenting time-based art in the gallery space. The exhibition opening is followed by an extensive festival program that includes discursive events, performances, concerts, retrospectives, and networking events.
The VIDEONALE.18 is open for experimental works from the fields of single- and multi-channel video, video installation, performance, sound art, and virtual reality.
The works selected by an international jury are presented in an exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Bonn and an accompanying exhibition catalogue. All selected artists receive an exhibition fee and accommodation during the opening days and are given the opportunity to participate in the festival and networking events.
In addition, the Videonale Prize of the Fluentum Collection endowed with 5,000 EUR will be awarded among all selected works by an independent jury at the opening of the VIDEONALE.18.
