A progressive exhibition project of contemporary video art.
VIDEOTHEKA is a progressive exhibition project of contemporary video art, presenting collectives in witch the artists have the possibility to not only show one representative work, but additionally give a synopsis on there latest or most significant productions.
The basic on witch VIDEOTHEKA is build is the research of the different methods that artists perceive, within the medium, to express there individual ideas.
Widescreens are presenting a video of each artist in sequence.
Different concepts, different poetics and techniques on the same screen.
Supplementary terminals, each representing one artist, give the chance to the visitor to discover other productions of the artists seen in the collective and get a more complete impression of their artistic language.
Viewers are invited to make themselves at home, sit at the terminals, wonder around the room and select videos according to there personal preference.
