VKUNST FRANKFURT

In May 2014, vkunst frankfurt presents for the sixth time current tendencies of international video art in the city centre of Frankfurt am Main, from MMK Museum of Modern Art to the Main river. Showing projections, interactive installations and animated computer art by about 40 artists, the windows of 25 galleries and shops will transform Frankfurt's Fahrgasse street into a 'roofless exhibition hall' for two evenings. vkunst frankfurt takes place annually and provides a constant platform for both established artists and young talents from all countries. On the second day (Saturday), the exhibition runs alongside the Frankfurt Night of the Museums.

This call is open to all media artists. Each artist may submit one work of art. For further information, entry details and download forms in English and German please see our website www.vkunst.de


MOTIVE 2014: 'mon amie, l'image'


We live in pictures. They are a part of every life, and everyone has built his or her personal relationship with them. In visual art, reality and fiction become pictorial. The artist's results are manifold and direct. The picture in itself can be both friend and enemy. It is part of the family and of life. This is particularly true in the artist's view and phantasy. The artists work with pictures in their heads every day, in nature, on the wall in front of their eyes. Friendships and relationships form. If one separates from one's work, the putative friendship lasts. To a friend one may say everything, ask him everything, love and hate him; he can be beautiful or ugly, boring or exciting. Which friend do I prefer to be seen with and which friendship is too intimate for public disclosure, or are there no boundaries at all? This is particularly true in the artist's view and phantasy.

'mon amie, l'image' is this year's title of vkunst frankfurt. It is in its nature that art is primarily a visual experience for the viewer. With this in mind, the curators of vkunstfrankfurt, Christoph von Lőw and Andreas Greulich, let themselves be guided in their concept of the sensuous-pictorial aspect of video art. What meaning may the image have for the video artist? Is it just an end in itself and appearances? Is the aesthetic deliberately negated, and the improvised, i.e. the non-professional, emphasized? What does the examination of the picture of our time place emphasis on? It is the task of vkunst Frankfurt 2014 to investigate this.


VKUNST AWARD 2014 BY JOCHEN LATZ


As in 2013, the media art prize 'vkunst', donated by Jochen Latz and endowed with 2,500 Euros, will be awarded. An independent jury of curators and art theoreticians will choose the award winner for the best exhibited work.
