BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 CALSCALE:GREGORIAN PRODID:iCalendar-Ruby VERSION:2.0 BEGIN:VEVENT DESCRIPTION:

The young man with the gun knows no mercy – Michael Kosakows ki transfers the murder fantasies of his interview partner into a fictional portrayal. The resulting work\,  “Zero Killed”\, is a challenge to the mor al principles of the viewer. This video work is an example of how media art currently explores new documentary techniques and is one of the 41 positio ns on display at VIDEONALE.14 in the Kunstmuseum Bonn.

\n

The Videonal e was founded in 1984 and is one of the oldest video art festivals in the w orld.

\n

The record number of submissions of the previous Videonale wa s once again exceeded: The jury of the 14th edition had to sift through mor e than 2100 works from 70 countries.

\n

“The investigation of private histories\, but also of collective memories\, crosses the boundaries betwee n reality and fiction in order to examine the subject of the story from var ious sides. Dramatic mixed forms result which\, with new\, open ways of tel ling a story\, cast their spell over the viewer"\, says Tasja Langenbach\, artistic director of VIDEONALE.14.

\n

In “like rats leaving a sinking ship”\, a highly personal collage of visual and acoustical documents\, Vika Kirchenbauer\, who frequently poses questions about identity\, gender\, fe minism and political activity in her works\, pursues her own search for ide ntity as a transgender. In “Slideshow Johnny”\, Martin Skauen investigates the blurred borders of identity: with sombre poetry and surreal performance s he pushes the possibilities of artistic self-portrayal to its very limits . And in “In free fall”\, Hito Steyerl merges the life cycle of an aircraft with personal stories and fictional elements to produce a criticism of the dynamic of the capitalistic system.

\n

But also the past of the almos t 30 year old Videonale is reflected in this year’s selection: Besides nume rous interesting artists of the younger generation\, well known names like Frances Scholz\, Christian Jankowski\, Meena Nanji and Melanie Manchot are found once more.

\n

”Works which differ greatly can be found: tranquil ones which take their time  - both documentaries and ones with strongly na rrative elements\; but also a large number of short clips which emphasise s ound and are characterised by their rhythm\, by a rapid collage of differen t pictorial elements”\, says Heike Ander\, curator of the Kunsthochschule f ür Medien Köln (Academy of Media Arts Cologne) and member of the jury.

\ n

The Jury comprised Heike Ander (curator of the Academy of Media Arts Co logne)\, Katerina Valdivia Bruch (freelance curator and author\, Berlin)\, Keren Cytter (artist\, Berlin)\, Philipp Fürnkäs (curator and author\, Duss eldorf)\, Jennifer Gassmann (project manager /festival programme VIDEONALE. 14\, Bonn)\, Tasja Langenbach (artistic director of VIDEONALE.14\, Bonn)\, Rolf Quaghebeur (director of Argos centre for art &\; media Brussels)\, Sabine Maria Schmidt (curator and author\, Düsseldorf)\, Olaf Stüber (publi sher\, curator of Videoart at Midnight\, Berlin).

\n

The exhibition ar chitecture of VIDEONALE.14 will be the work of Julia Büchel\, Hochschule fü r Gestaltung Basel (Basel College of Art and Design)\, Masterstudio Design (supervised by Prof. Andreas Wenger).
