VIDEONALE Bonn - Presentations and video-selections

The Bonn Videonale - international video art festival and competition has continuously expanded and shifted since its beginnings in 1984. Complementing the screenings, the programme of the biennial survey is today rendered more exciting by its large-scale exhibition and discussions by experts focusing on current themes in media art. The curator of the most recent festival, Videonale 10, Georg Elben, comments on the works from the collection that are presented at the screenings in Budapest. The first evening of the event (at the Műcsarnok/Kunsthalle Budapest) offers a selection of works of German video art from the past 25 years. On the second evening of the programme (in the Dorottya Gallery), it is selected works from the Videonale 10 that are featured, and we can also become acquainted with the unusual architecture of the Kunstmuseum Bonn, which hosts the exhibition of the festival, providing a new solution for the presentation of video and media art in exhibition form.
