A new project aimed at all those in the orbit of videoart!

A new great initiative by Magmart!
We are currently working on an international project focused on building a network for all videoart-related peoples (artists, curators, spaces, collectors, simply enthusiasts).

This will be a useful tool, mainly for all curators that work with videoart. More, it will contain a wide database (of artists and curators), that will be always open to your full worker management. At any time, you can access and modified the stored data, add new informations, or simply remove your presence. And, obviously, we'll never use your data for commercial purpose and don't transfer them to third part, neither for money nor for free.
Take part you too, linked to videoart database, check if your email address is already present, and enter your details. Otherwise, register and input your data!
The network will be online on 2016, very soon!

100x100=900 catalogue

The 100x100=900 catalogue (214 pages, A4) finally available!
100 artists, 57 partners, 40 curators from around the world, for the project which celebrated 50 years of video art.
Order now your copy of printed catalogue!
