[Nettime-nl] Open Call, videoDictionary in collaboration with Impakt

Open Call, videoDictionary in collaboration with Impakt

TheVideoArtFoundation, in collaboration with Impakt Festival, is launching the second open call to select new works to be included in the videoDictionary project.

The videoDictionary is a project about the relationship between words and the moving image. It is a collection of one minute art videos that define a word without using any words in the image or on the soundtrack. The title of the work must be made up of one single existing word from the English dictionary.

At least 5 new words/works from the open call will be included with the help of the Impakt Festival. Regulations and details are available at (click ‘Submissions’)

DEADLINE: November 15, 2005

Note: Please direct all correspondence to TheVideoArtFoundation. Submissions should also be send to the TheVideoArtFoundation, not to Impakt.

videoDictionary was presented in London in spring 2004. Since then it has been show in Madrid (La Casa Encendida), London (Island Art Film and Video Festival) and Barcelona (Centre d'Art Santa Mònica).
At this moment project already consists of over 50 works/words by artists like: J. Tobias Anderson (CHASE)
Johan Grimonprez (LOOKALIKE)
Cecilia Lundqvist (MOSQUITO)
Girardet / Müller (RAY)
Pierre Bismuth (REVOLUTION)
Sophie Whettnall (SHADOW)
Mark Lewis, (SKATE)
Antoni Muntadas (SPACE)
Alicia Framis (STRIKE)
Emmanuelle Antille (TORNADO).
With each presentation the collection is steadily growing.
On the next months videoDictionary is traveling to Utrecht, The Netherlands (Impakt Festival, December 7 to 11) and León, Spain (MUSAC).
