Magmart festival VIII edition is over, and is time of an appraisal. Along this years, often fighting against many difficulties, we have seek the goal to support videoart, to widen the opportunities of cultural exchange between artists and countries. I think with a bit of success. But now is time for some changes. The festival risk to become just a ritual, and on the other side new ways, new horizons opens.
In my opinion, the festival remain relevant; it is still an important appointment for international videoart community, and for italian artists in particular, so we don't think to drop out it. Becoming biennal, we think the festival can increase its significance. But, at the same time, we want explore the new ways that can bring to the same goal.
The experience of 100x100=900 Project is must important, for us. It has show us the relevance of a new approach. The project is still on the run, and so is too-early for an appraisal; but it has stimulated some relevant reflections, and I want continue to explore this way. So, even if the festival become biennal, we'll organize something each year, alternating with festival itself. And something is already on work-in-progress for 2014. I hope to find all you again, on these new roads... So, keep in touch!
To celebrate 50th of videoart in 2013, Magmart Festival has launched the project 100x100=900. The Project has involved 100 artists from worldwide, and has reach many locations in the world, with it's international tour - realized thanks to a partnership program.

PIERO CHIARIELLO. Natura Digitale
Curated by Veronica D’Auria
With a text by Domenico Esposito
The dirartecontemporanea | 2.0 gallery is pleased to announce the opening in the network, Wednesday, March 26 2014 from 8:00 PM , of the solo exhibition "Natura Digitale" by Piero Chiariello .
" The exhibition consists of digital works , which combine photography, computer art and video art ,it shows the artist's visual research conducted in recent years.
Chiariello investigating the matter of the image, fixed and moving, penetrating between the frames and the pixels and triggering processes brings out the digital nature in its possible manipulations "induced" and random ones.
Reveal another aspect of the "Digital Nature" the artist's words referred to the series of works that appears in the first room : " My works show the "natural" side of technology : sometimes something breaks the " correct " view of the images on the screen. What's this? A malfunction ? An error? For me it's the nature. For some reason the path of electrons is deflected or modified, and the images we see are the result of spontaneous natural balance . "
Static mosaics of video footage recorded by Chiariello for the city give rise to a new vision : fragmented landscapes "motionless" in which coexist different space / time captured and crystallized in the flicker of reproduction.
From photographs and footage of everyday landscapes as works of art , originate prints and videos characterized by the expansion of the " lines " that make up the images. Bands , vertical or horizontal , which expands on the surface of open horizons in the visible , they hatch into facets of colours and in the squared elongated two-dimensional of the pixels maintaining the recognisability of the source is revealed in all its complexity .
The artist in his digital experimentation continues and updates the research on perception, and consequently on the configuration of the existing, impressionist and cubist and crosses the pixels and glitch art as surveys conducted on the development of textures minimimalist of the image. " ( Veronica D'Auria )
To accompany the viewer in the expositive path there are two critical texts ,of the exhibition's curator Veronica D'Auria and art critic DomenicoEsposito .

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.
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. The artists work with the 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?
'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.
Dates: Friday, May 9, 2014, 8 pm - 12 am | Award Presentation 10 pm
Saturday, May 10, 2014, 8 pm - 12 am | alongside the Frankfurt Night of the Museums

We are very proud to welcome Marcel Odenbach, one of one of the pioneers and important exponents of German video art.
His works on video and video installations attest to his crucial role in promoting and shaping the international development of this genre. From the early videos, which were still conceived for presentation on monitors, to his complex installations including large projections, the screening illustrates the subtlety and formal variety with which Odenbach stages the moving picture and its acoustic accompaniment.
The selection of works combines this retrospective orientation with an attempt to cover the major thematic emphases in the artist’s oeuvre. The close critical engagement with the problem of how to deal with the past, in particular, illustrates that his art is an exemplary reflection on the German post-war era and its social situation. Yet Marcel Odenbach also worked early on to embed this thematic emphasis in a wider horizon, expanding on the specifically German issues to achieve a more universal perspective. He studied different cultures and political constellations and integrated his observations into his work, drawing connections between the German trauma of Nazi rule and the Rwandan genocide, between images of masculinity in Turkey and the role of women in Venezuela, between the familiar and the foreign, between his own biography and the history of others.
Odenbach’s videos and graphic works are complex narratives the artist creates by means of a unique collage technique out of recorded film and television footage, archival material, and pictures he has produced himself. Montaging public and private imagery, he spins stories that interweave the larger frame of history with the emotions of the individual human being and his own biography.

Since the 80s, Georgian art has undergone an evolution, which ran parallel to the predominant, hegemonic discourse of the socio-cultural reality. Within this context, it has created artifacts in various forms of media, which were novel to the social reality and circumstances of the respective time, but did not trigger any adequate analyses of these impulses. The political and economical conditions of the 90s, which marked the aftermath of the Soviet breakdown, complicated actions directed towards categorization and preservation as well.
Today, in the time of independence and re-orientation, the necessity of an archive, which is reminiscent and serves the mediation of knowledge of the beginning and development of the Georgian art movement, is unequivocal. Furthermore, it is the preliminary step towards a rethinking of the latter. With time passing by, the risk of these artifacts falling into oblivion or into irrelevance is steadily increasing, which is why the independent platform „Active for Culture' initiated the creation of the very first Georgian video art archive, which is being introduced through „Descriptions'.
By 'descriptions' we often mean to refer to objective, plain truths. Georgian video art, which has widely developed in the undercurrent before establishing itself as a separate medium, offers us various descriptions – but from a very subjective and alternative point of view. Although a comprehensive contextualization might only be possible from a retrospective, the exhibition aims to compile and illustrate 23 years of Georgian video art – exemplified by audiovisual works from 21 artists.
This project is the first step of reconsideration of the respective material, which is crucial for the clarification of what we should call Georgian art history, which stages it has undergone, and ultimately, how it has shaped the cultural identity. The conduction of comprehensive research about Georgian moving image and video art as well as the setup of an archive, which up to today consists of more than 400 video works by 80 artists, can be considered the first stage of the project. On the one hand, this is due to the current presence of video art in the field of contemporary art and its evident feature of perceptive accessibility, on the other hand, the financial as well as material resources currently limit the venture to this stage.
Future plans include the constant update and further development of the online archive, the selection of video artifacts and their exhibition in various corners of the world as well as the print of a publication which approaches Georgian video art from a theoretical perspective.

'I Dreamt of You so Much That...' film by Stefan Constantinescu (RO/SWE), 90’ 2009 - 2019 work in progress
Friday, March 14, 2014, 7-9pm
Dock 18, Seestr. 395, Rote Fabrik, Zurich a selection of 3 short films by artist Stefan Constantinescu from his ongoing 7-part series followed by an artist talk and reception.
I Dreamt of You so Much That...a series of seven short films that together present one vision from different perspectives, examines intimate moments in the lives of seven couples, who question, challenge and push the limits of their relationship, while blurring the lines between private and public spaces, often to potentially disturbing yet uncertain conclusions. The stories treat the violence and complexity of interaction between men and women, alienation, and the illusion of true connection with the other.
Troleibuzul 92 (Bus no. 92), 2009 (8 min) - A man sits down on a bus and calls his wife or girlfriend. The conversation that ensues becomes more and more threatening and violent, turning the audience, like the other passengers, into unwilling participants.
Family Dinner, 2012 (14 min) - What lies behind the mask of the model Swedish family? While husband and daughter prepare dinner, the mother engages in cell phone sex with a co-worker, only to return to her normal role minutes later.
6 Big Fish, 2013 (14 min) - Two Swedish artists are in Bucharest on a residency and suddenly find themselves responsible for 6 large live goldfish. Their different perspectives on life and art inform their approach to what to do with the fish, and ultimately test their relationship.
Stefan Constantinescu (1968, Bucharest), is a visual artist and film director living in Stockholm, Sweden and Bucharest, Romania.
In 2009 he represented Romania at Venice Biennial. He explores the issues of identity and memory through films, books and paintings. His fictional movies are shot in a seemingly documentary style, revealing the violence underlying human relationships in contemporary society. Currently, Stefan is working on a feature film titled Viking Story Line produced by Atmo Stockholm and co-produced by Parada Film Bucharest.
Itinerant Projects is the platform for our curatorial and programmatic initiatives. We developed this nomadic and roving curatorial model because we believe in bringing together emerging, mid-career, and established artists, with a diverse audience base, and unusual or alternative spaces. Our nomadic nature permits us to create relationships between seemingly disparate constituencies, and thereby truly build a bridge between the public and the art community.

Sinopsis del proyecto
En el sur de Portugal, a 50 km de Lisboa, existe un territorio de rara belleza natural, situado en una de las líneas de costa menos intervenidas por el hombre de toda Europa. Escenario idílico de una carrera casi única en todo el mundo: 43 km corridos por la arena de la playa a lo largo del Océano Atlántico. Un desafío que requiere actitud, fuerza mental, preparación, mucho entrenamiento y sacrificio. Los atletas desafían sus propios límites, enfrentando la distancia y atravesando por todos nosotros aquel territorio. El record, verdaderamente impresionante, de esta carrera es de 2h45m, realizado por Eusébio Rosa. Pero, para la mayoría de los atletas, el desafío es apenas llegar al fin. Seguimos ocho de ellos, de diferentes orígenes y condiciones, hablándonos sobre sus motivaciones para correr, sobre lo que piensan mientras corren y sobre lo que significa para ellos y para su vida, ser corredores.

The Tate Modern, London’s influential modern art museum, will hold a special exhibition later this year of the definitive works of the late Paik Nam-june, the Korean artist revered as the father of video art.
The display is a project in partnership with Korea car maker Hyundai Motor, which in January announced an unprecedented 11-year commitment to funding the space, starting with the Paik exhibit.
In a news conference in Seoul, Friday, Tate director Sir Nicholas Serota expressed hopes that the museum’s partnership with Hyundai will help it broaden the range of international works displayed in its spaces, including The Hyundai Commission in the Turbine Hall.
“We look forward to working together with Hyundai, exploring the most innovative and creative ideas from around the world,” he said.
The Tate Modern, a branch of the Tate Group, is one of the busiest contemporary art museums in the world, attracting over 5 million visitors a year since opening in 2000. The building was a power station before it was converted into a gallery and the Turbine Hall is named as such because it had been where the turbines were located.
The hall has been used to display innovative and occasionally provocative works from artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Anish Kapoor and Ai Weiwei, who were grouped in a series called The Unilever Project, named after the consumer goods company that sponsored the space from 2010 to 2012. There was no new commission in 2013.
The innovative and even provocative artworks at the Unilever Project, such as Olafur Eliasson’s The Weather Project, raised awareness of space and time and received critical acclaim and resulted in a good publicity of the consumer goods company.
Hyundai’s 11-year partnership is the longest initial commitment from a corporate sponsor in Tate’s history as the norm has been a three-year deal.
Hyundai says its partnership with Tate comes from its aim to become a “lifestyle company” rather than just a vehicle manufacturer. The company sponsored the museum to acquire nine of Paik’s media artworks, which will highlight the exhibition that will open sometime in autumn.
“At Hyundai, we understand that cars can provide much more than transportation. They can connect with people emotionally and it is this feeling that connects people to great art. This is the nature of our partnership with the Tate. We are excited about the new possibilities that lie ahead and are very privileged to be working together with the Tate on this inspiring collaboration,” Hyundai vice chairman Chung Eui-sun said in a statement.
Hyundai also signed a 10-year partnership with the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Arts, Korea worth 12 billion won ($11.3 million) last year.

Live Drawing "Contaminazioni" di Cristiano Baricelli e visual di Valerio Visconti. Un incrocio di sinestesia tra suono e visione, che mette in comune le ricerche artistiche dei vari componenti di Duplex Ride. Un crocevia in cui gli elementi fondamentali di musica e immagini, sotto forma di concerti e proiezioni video, s'intersecano con altre forme di espressione creativa, dal reading poetico alla performance, dall'installazione al disegno dal vivo. NOS e' formato da Marco Cacciamani, Claudio Ferrari e Riccardo Canessa, che, tra le rispettive diverse passioni artistiche, qui condividono quella che hanno in comune: la musica eletttronica. Essenzialmente improvvisate, le loro performances sono integrate con videoproiezioni curate da Gianriccardo Scheri ed aperte ad interventi di ospiti. Si definiscono un gruppo d'improvvisazione elettrotecnica, i cui diversi incontri in studio e i concerti dal novembre 2008 hanno finora fruttato 2 CD autoprodotti. La performance vedra' il contemporaneo live drawing di Cristiano Baricelli. Fra techno e natura, casualita' e sequencer, ritmi decisi e voci parlate. Questo e' sostanzialmente MODUS (Massimo Pegoraro) classe 1981, da sempre dedito alla ricerca ed allo studio in ambito musicologico. Rassegna a cura di Duplex Ride, Casa della Musica - Genova, Comune di Genova, Genova Palazzo Ducale, Fondazione per la Cultura.

Over the course of one year, the IBB-Videolounge will present 12 artists who have drawn attention to themselves with innovative use of the media film and video in recent years. The selected artists are both established representatives of contemporary video art as well as emerging artists who have scarcely made their mark on Berlin’s active art scene. A new, changing programme of different works will be compiled each month.
In March (05.03.–31.03.2014) IBB-Videolounge shows two works by Patrycja German (*1979, Wroclaw/Poland). She devises situations which require counterparts to join her in ‘playing the game’. This enables her to address complex themes around intimacy and detachment, the physical body and gender roles. Video as a medium is not central to her art, but rather a means for recording her performances.
Patrycja German has been awarded a number of prizes and grants, including a working bursary from the Senate of Berlin, the Schindler Scholarship LA and the HAP Grieshaber Award. She lives and works in Berlin.
Works shown at IBB-Videolounge:
100 vs. 100, 2006, video, colour, 46 mins.
In 100 vs. 100 German challenges a man of the same size and weight to a wrestling match. The two participants wear nothing but (identical) shorts. Their tussle, which begins cautiously and gradually turns increasingly passionate and embittered, is filmed as a single continuous sequence. The male wrestler in particular is at first inhibited about touching his opponent, let alone attacking her, but after a while sexual differences lose relevance. Stereotyped gender images are thus called into question. The spectator is both referee and voyeur, left to his or her own devices – an observer observing him/herself.
80 vs. 3, 2006, video, colour, 20 mins.
In 80 vs. 3 the artist has cast three men able to support an 80-kilo weight for a lengthy period. The weight is actually the artist, who has herself carried naked through a gallery space by the men and handed in the process from one to the next. This straightforward task permits reflections about the body language of the participants and the power structures that unfold in this simple experiment: one of the men assumes a more dominant role than the other two; the men are motivated by social pressure to keep going even when their strength begins to fade. As in 100 vs. 100, inhibitions about touching someone else’s naked body are gradually overcome, until eventually this becomes a mere object which just happens to form a routine part of the task.
Opening 5th June 2014

John Cage, Henri Chopin, Patrick Coyle, Ian Giles, Marlene Haring, Alexandrina Hemsley & Jamila Johnson-Small, Patrick Hough, Jacob Kirkegaard, Liz Magic Laser, Lina Lapelyte, Hassan Meer, Nástio Mosquito, Laure Prouvost, Ryder Ripps, Alex Schweder, John Stezaker, Jon Wozencroft
Graduating RCA Curating Contemporary Art students present an international group exhibition that explores the indistinct spaces which lie between chatter and silence.
Taking its title from Samuel Beckett's Not I (1972), ... all silent but for the buzzing ... aims to transport the distant whispering of Beckett's play into the exhibition space. Viewers are invited to experience a variety of mediums, scales and spectra of sounds through artists' installations, sculptures, collages and performances.
Distant whispering becomes overwhelming chatter as John Stezaker's charged video collage creates a sensory bombardment of repetitive images. Omani artist Hassan Meer's video installation immerses the viewer in a contemplative experience of both physical and psychological suppression. Patrick Hough investigates the construction and representation of historical objects and their narratives in the present, while the provocative videos of Angolan artist and musician Nástio Mosquito creates an audiovisual cacophony to question stereotypes of communication and cultural identity. Liz Magic Laser further emphasises the performative and political strategies of media rhetoric.
Viewers can participate in Marlene Haring's Solo Show (Face Up) (2012), a bar for one guest at a time. The internal and personal experience of sound defines Jacob Kirkegaard's installation Labyrinthitis (2007), as well as an interactive audio guide, including Turner Prize winning artist Laure Prouvost's Pink Cloud (2012). The audio guide will also feature an integration of sound art and performance by Lina Lapelyte, whom Brian Eno recognises as 'working right at the edge of what popular music could become'.
... all silent but for the buzzing ... includes sound + gesture, a weekend of free events with workshops, talks and performances on 15 and 16 March. Includes a restaging of John Cage's seminal work 4’33”; contemporary dance by Alexandrina Hemsley & Jamila Johnson-Small and a live performance by African multimedia artist Nástio Mosquito.

A spectacular installation by Douglas Gordon in permanent collection, "Pretty much every film and video work from about 1992 until now". Acquired in 2003, Pretty much every film and video work from about 1992 until now has just been considerably enriched with 43 new videos by the artist. This makes the museum the world's largest holder of Gordon's video works. This presentation is a significant addition to such other major ensembles as Raoul Dufy's Magic of Electricity, Henri Matisse's two Dances and Christian Boltanski's Reserve des Enfants.

Ogni venerdì del mese di marzo alle ore 18.00 la Galleria Nuvole presenta la rassegna Videovisioni, la cui selezione degli artisti è stata affidata a Rita Casdia.
Sono quattro gli appuntamenti alla scoperta della video arte in Italia che mettono a confronto un ventaglio di video-artisti diversi, due per volta, con lo scopo di presentare al pubblico le diverse e possibili declinazioni che la video arte ha assunto oggi come pratica artistica.
Le opere di ciascun artista si connotano sia per la loro unicità dettata dalle tematiche affrontate, sia dai generi esplorati con un voluto e consapevole uso sperimentale del mezzo stesso.
Claudia Maina utilizza la video arte inizialmente come documentazione delle proprie perfomance e prosegue il suo percorso con protagoniste le sue sculture/installazioni.
Barbara Brugola indaga il tempo e la molteplicità dei punti di vista con l’uso delle multi proiezioni che dilatano la percezione della visione in atmosfere sospese e intime.
Valeria Proserpio con una scelta minima e radicale offre un unico punto di vista. Sua è la preferenza di utilizzare una camera fissa e scoprire nello stato d’immobilità soggettivo un flusso esterno vitale e perpetuo.
Assila Cherfi sperimenta diverse tecniche video digitali con uno sguardo documentaristico che si dirige anche verso un’analisi sociologica, il suono è un ulteriore elemento guida che si concatena alle immagini.
Annamaria Di Giacomo registra la sua osservazione con l’uso di materiali d’archivio oppure analizzando frammenti di vita vissuta.
Marta Roberti sviluppa la sua ricerca simultaneamente su un piano teorico-filosofico e su un piano pratico-artistico. Il punto di approdo è quello di superare il confine tra arte e filosofia lavorando a concetti propri della tradizione filosofica, quali la ripetizione e il divenire. Non a caso utilizza la tecnica dell’animazione per i suoi video.
Giulia Giannola osserva situazioni quotidiane della vita collettiva o personale creando visioni irreali o suggerendo realtà alternative.
7 marzo - Barbara Brugola e Marta Roberti
14 marzo - Giulia Giannola e Valeria Proserpio
21 marzo - Claudia Maina e Assila Cherfi
28 marzo - Annamaria Di Giacomo e Rita Casdia

Join Anne Spalter as she talks about her exciting work involving art and technology. Her video pieces are based on original footage shot in remote locations, from moving vehicles. Be prepared to see adventure, the unexpected, and serendipitous moments that you would’t expect. Anne will show material from and discuss the backstories of several works, as well as some of the computer-based methods of creation.
The pieces are location, weather, and time-specific videos shot from cars, high-rise buildings from the air, and underwater. These images fold in on themselves and abstract forms and patterns emerge.
Anne Morgan Spalter was trained as a traditional painter now she incorporates media tools, digital video and oil paint. Her work channels the actions painters who have been engaged physically in the environment and the moment. Anne’s work draws from painting, mathematics, and Buddhist and Islamic art. She shows widely in the US, Europe and the Middle East. Anne created the first fine art digital courses at RISD and Brown University. Her book “The Computer and the Visual Arts”, has become a standard.
Spalter is a long-time member of the Advisory Board of the Digital Art Museum, Berlin and has served on the editorial board of the Journal of Mathematics and Art, and the ACM SIGGRAPH Committee for Distinguished Artist Award for Lifetime Achievement in Digital Art. She has a BA from Brown University in Mathematics, Visual Art, and an independent major, as well as an MFA in Painting from RISD.
