For ten years, we pursue a ray of light that paints stories on white screens, offering to the imagination of those who want to see them, and thrilling experience, stimulating reflections, arousing synapses. A story that is intertwined with that of hundreds of other players, and that becomes a collective history.
We have gone through 10 years of videoart worldwide, meeting artists, curators, gallery owners, enthusiasts. We called them to rally in Naples, where Magmart every year, since 2005, organizes a festival now a reference point for international videoart, and does so in collaboration with one of the most innovative and alternative contemporary art museums, the CAM, Casoria Contemporary Art Museum.
Here we have presented works by artists from around the world, because contemporary art, and videoart even more, knows no boundaries nor take barriers.
And we went to our turn to meet around the world, first bringing selection of works presented at the festival, then with the thematic projects, which kicked off celebrating fifty years of videoart with 100x100=900, in 2013.
Nine editions of the festival, meanwhile become biennial, which saw the participation of artists from seventy-seven countries. And then the projects, who have traveled the world (Albania, Algeria, Argentina, Armenia, Bosnia and herzegovina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Colombia, Ethiopia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Iran, Israel, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Morocco, Netherlands, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russian Federation, Serbia and Montenegro, Slovenia, Spain, Uruguay, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States), with the help of many curators.
And now, we are present on Google Cultural Institute too.
We wrote pieces of the history of videoart, all of them together.
Due this story is the story of all those who, in any way, have taken part. No exceptions. Artists and curators, before anyone else.
Magmart, a good story.
