Video Art Video cordially invites you to the first screening of video series form 40 years of German Video Art.
Time: 15:00 June 28th 2012
Location: Hanoi DOCLAB – 56/58 Nguyễn Thái Học – Ba Đình – Hà Nội.
Video art emerged in the 60s in the U.S. and Germany and has become one of the most influential genres of art of the 20th Century. Technical systems have developed further, changed or even disappeared: the former TV screen has given way to the computer monitor, video cassettes to software programs and hard drives. The biggest challenge of video art is its own mortality, due to the short life of the electronic media. Thus, the survival of video art is dependent on a never-ending process of adaptation to new technological standards. 40jahrevideokunst.de, an initiative of the Federal Cultural Foundation, has therefore taken on the task of the rescue, care and dissemination of video art. Five important museums in Germany have joined forces to realize this project, under the direction of Karlsruhe ZKM (Center for Art and Media Technology). Here video art works are professionally archived, digitized, and protected from disappearing.
