Crosstalk Video Art Festival brings a prospective to the Budapest contemporary art scene: it connects people through art and urban environment and aims to create an interlock of network of viewers and artists.
Next to the annual festival, we organize the Crosstalk Video Presentation series in a monthly rotation, that seeks to maintain attention towards our agenda in the form of a regularly organized event-series. The monthly program aims to provide Hungarians and international video artists with an open, strait dialogue platform to meet personally with the videolover public. Once a month an artist or a curator is invited to present their videos and share their experiences with the audience. The video presentation serie takes place at pop up places every now and then.
