Athens Video Art Festival (AVAF) is an annual digital arts and new media festival taking place in Greece, mainly Athens. Being part of an international art network, it reflects a wide range of ideas and developments in the art world.
It aims at bringing together experimental projects of contemporary artists and at promoting free expression, exchange of ideas, and creative interaction while exhibiting new media and new technologies application in arts.
Through a variety of creative forms, it presents alternative ways of “viewing” urban landscape and of perceiving art, and new codes of interaction between art and contemporary societies.
Athens Video Art Festival supports contemporary artistic trends, within the frame of the urban culture out of which it originated.
By using as a primary tool its diverse program, it pursues within this frame a multitude of goals. It welcomes projects in seven official categories, collaborates with festivals, agencies, institutions and organizations throughout the globe, incorporates art history by way of special tribute shows, and in parallel stages music events. Its first priorities are: high aesthetic quality of projects shown, and dialectical interaction with the international art community, and the Festival’s visitors.
Athens Video Art Festival began in 2005 thanks to an initiative by Multitrab Productions that invited more than 100 video artists from all over the world to show their work to the Greek audience. The first show having been a success, four more shows followed that took place at Technopolis of the City of Athens, each adding a new official category to those of the previous one (2006: Installations/Video Installations; 2007: Performance Art; 2008: Web Art; 2009: Animation και Digital Image).
During the last five years, AVAF has had the honor to organize special tributes to some of the most emblematic figures of contemporary art: Bill Viola (2008), Bill Vorn (2009), Nam June Paik (in collaboration with Paik Studios, 2009), Andy Warhol (in collaboration with Electronic Arts Intermix, 2010), the influence of Fluxus (2011). It also multiplied its collaborations with academics, festivals, organizations, agencies and institutions in Greece and abroad.
In 2010-2011, AVAF, promoting decentralization of artistic creation, travelled (AVAF on tour) to thirteen locations in Greece (Syros, Leucas, Rethimnon, Mytilene, Tilos, Oresteias, Kozani, Volos, Tripolis, Kalamaria, Ardas, Oropos, Euboea), thus creating new artistic and commercial perspectives at a national level.
The seventh edition of AVAF (2011 Edition/The future is now) constituted a turning point. By featuring multilevel experimentation, establishing two-way relations with internationally important art institutions (onedotzero-adventures in motion, participation in the selection panel of Waterman’s digital arts festival and more), introducing new, upcoming artists (Believe the hype) and setting up a second music stage to explore the possibilities of electronic music (Koreless, Young Montana, Paul White & The Purple Brain), it boldly renewed its character and nature.
Athens Video Art Festival, always faithful in experimentation and constant self-criticism as contemporary art and life prerequisites, welcomed 2012 with its eighth official edition.
