Founded in 2006, Cologne International Videoart Festival is celebrating in 2014 its 10th festival edition. For 10 years, CologneOFF supported "art & moving images" and and encouraged artists to use this exciting medium creatively. For Cologne International Videoart Festival, CologneOFF X is representing the final festival edition. Afterwards Cologne International Videoart Festival will continue as an exhibition format of artvideoKOELN international in the framework of its global activities of "art & moving images".
CologneOFF X is standing under the theme of "Total Art", showing video as a multi-facetted artistic audio-visual medium, which is executed solely by its creator, including filming, cutting, editing, composing, post-priducing etc, thus the whole creation in one single hand.
The digitalization of video made it only possible, that artists can create such a "total art" work, due to the affordability of the entire production. It is not even necessary to have the most advanced professional equipment. A creative person can use even cheap production tools for creating excellent art works.
But, "Total Art" is not only related to the creative production of a video, but also to the artistic contents, encouraging submitting artists to use all their creativity to go steps forward in exploring the artistic potential of video.
