Open Call for the second edition of Addis Video Art Festival
Addis Video Art Festival, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia Deadline: 01 August 2016
Addis Video Art Festival intends to provide a platform for innovative video art in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
The festival will screen throughout the city in a variety of locations including street corners, rooftops, public centers and art centers. By sharing video art in both conventional and non-conventional settings, the festival will reach both the artist community and the everyday passerby. The festival aims to create a dialogue between local, and international artists by encouraging digital media culture.
Theme: LOVE TRIANGLE
“triangulation: a method of finding a distance or location by measuring the distance between two points whose exact location is known and then measuring the angles between each point and a third unknown point”
“Love Triangle” implies a connection and ties between three entities; the subject and two objects. Due to a surge in development, many residents of the city of Addis Ababa will be relocating to new neighborhoods. For those who move their sense of belonging is no longer singular, instead they are tied between yesterday and today, here and there.
The festival seeks works that translate new positions that are created from the experience of moving or changing between place, time and or identity.
