Videonale e.V.- Association for the Advancement of Cultural Awareness in the Audio-Visual Field is committed to the presentation, mediation and promotion of contemporary works of video art and time-based art forms as well as to the conservation and study of its historical inheritance.
One of the association’s most important functions is organizing an international festival of video and time-based arts. Since it first took place in 1984, the VIDEONALE – Festival for Video and Time-Based Arts has been held every two years. To this day VIDEONALE has remained true to its founding principle of casting light on the current trends in time-based arts and presenting these to the general public. It continues to focus on the advancement of aspiring young artists, while also presenting established positions of video art.
During the time between the biennial VIDEONALE editions, the Videonale association organizes, among others Elektronenströme (streams of electrons), a series of lectures dealing with current discussions and positions of video art, as well as the film series VIDEONALE.scope, a yearly series of retrospectives on filmmakers dealing with the interfaces between experimental film, film and video art. The association further tours its program as Videonale on Tour with presentations at institutions worldwide.
