International symposium. In lectures, panel discussions and artist talks, the contemporary video art practice is looked at from the perspectives of presentation, technological change, production and the public.
Much rejected in the art world and exhibitions in the 1970s and 1980s, video art today plays a key role in the current art scene. It principally differs from other media by its technicality, its intangible nature, as well as its flexibility and adaptability in terms of the aesthetic processes within the medium. Neuer Berliner Kunstverein examines this specificity of video art in an international symposium, taking place from 1 to 2 February. In lectures, panel discussions and artist talks, the contemporary video art practice is looked at from the perspectives of presentation, technological change, production and the public.
