The Call for Entries for the 18th edition of the Videonale has begun, and all artists and filmmakers are invited to submit their works for the competition.
The Videonale is an important venue for artists, curators, collectors and the interested public, as well as a platform for discussing current themes and aesthetics of moving images. Unlike other festivals, the Videonale presents the selected works not in a cinema format but in a large-scale exhibition and thus reflects on the possibilities of presenting time-based art in the gallery space. The exhibition opening is followed by an extensive festival program that includes discursive events, performances, concerts, retrospectives, and networking events.
The VIDEONALE.18 is open for experimental works from the fields of single- and multi-channel video, video installation, performance, sound art, and virtual reality.
The works selected by an international jury are presented in an exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Bonn and an accompanying exhibition catalogue. All selected artists receive an exhibition fee and accommodation during the opening days and are given the opportunity to participate in the festival and networking events.
Deadline for submissions: June 30, 2020 (23:59 CET)
Artists of all nationalities and ages can submit up to three works each. There are no limitations on the duration and genre, but the submitted works may not be older than two years (produced after January 1, 2018).
The competition jury and the artistic director decide on the participation in the VIDEONALE.18 based on the submitted materials. The applicants will be notified on the decisions by email starting at the end of October 2020. We kindly ask you to refrain from inquiries beforehand.
