Video Digest #1

Ein Online-Videomagazin von Videonale und IMAI – Inter Media Art Institute

Online from 24.11.2023

Exhibition: 25.11.-10.12.2023 / Opening: 24.11.2023 | Moltkerei Werkstatt Cologne

With Video Digest, the Videonale Bonn and the IMAI – Inter Media Art Institute Düsseldorf present an online video art magazine and an associated research and exhibition project at the Moltkerei Werkstatt, Cologne, that is expanded by the concurrent program series VIDEONALE.scope.

Video Digest takes up impulses from historical video magazines like Schauinsland, Infermental and Zapp Magazine and from a present-day perspective examines, on the basis of current works newly produced for the magazine, the resistive potential of moving images in different communication channels. The videos, performances and zines by Ji Su Kang-Gatto, Ayesha Hameed, Becket MWN, Rrangwane and Leyla Yenirce (in collaboration with Mazlum Nergiz) newly created in this context make use of diverse languages and strategies of protest and mobilization, but also of resignation, and reflect on a current video habitat shaped by video on demand, smart TV, YouTube/ Youku, TikTok and Instagram.

Alongside the new productions, the exhibition Video Digest shows a complete issue of each of the historical video magazines Schauinsland, Infermental and Zapp Magazine in an exhibition architecture by Lennart Wolff, flanked by temporary extensions in the form of screenings and performances.

Curators: Miriam Hausner, Nele Kaczmarek, Tasja Langenbach
