Deadline: July 4, 2016

PERFORM! is the theme of the competition and festival programme of the VIDEONALE.16 – Festival for Video and Time-Based Arts.

The VIDEONALE.16 competition invites artists from around the world to submit works which deal with the issue of the performative in art and society in all its facets.

– no restrictions on the duration of the work submitted
– no restrictions on the nationality or age of the artist
– works submitted may not be more than two years old
– artists are not permitted to submit more than one entry.

All types of experimental moving-image-based works as well as performance projects can be submitted to the competition.

For VIDEONALE.16, around 40 works will be selected by an international jury of experts to be presented at a six-week exhibition in the Kunstmuseum Bonn.

The works exhibited will compete for the Videonale Prize, worth 5,000 EUR.

During the exhibition, a diverse festival programme will animate both the Kunstmuseum and various locations around the City of Bonn. Talks by artists, panel discussions, guided tours, workshops, performances, educational events, and the student exhibition project VIDEONALE.Parcours in the city centre will all serve to provide a comprehensive perspective on contemporary artistic practice, as well as on current debates surrounding the moving image and the digital arts.

Following the exhibition in the Kunstmuseum Bonn, the works displayed at VIDEONALE.16 will be exhibited at a series of further international institutions.
