Athens Video Art Festival is an International Festival of Digital Arts and New Media. It celebrates digital culture through an annual gathering that brings together a global community of artists and audiences. Athens Video Art Festival aims to encourage, stimulate and promote all aspects of digital creation by investing in local as well as international artists and communities.
Theme introduction: How can one balance the distance between the edges of contemporary social and historical reality? Is this question pointless? naive? Or even hollow? A close observation of everyday life is required to identify that the EDGE is a central motif of our everyday reference. New dipoles arise constantly as people deny what they cannot comprehend. The defined limit is a result of a compromise between those two: what a team is claiming for itself and what others want to accredit. A collectivity can operate by accepting a certain degree of multiplicity.
Athens Video Art Festival 2014 will bring together people of different practices and through collaboration will attempt to blur their boundaries anticipating an unpredictable and subversive outcome.
Deadline for entries: 10 March 2014
