The VIDEONALE will take place in its 19th edition from 31.03. - 14.05.2023 with an exhibition of 27 video artworks at Kunstmuseum Bonn and a diverse program in the midst of the exhibition and at satellites in the urban area of Bonn.

With each work, a new window is opened to the diverse range of contemporary productions from the field of video art and moving images. The themes are as varied as they are relevant to the present.

We want to talk about these perspectives with the artists, the audience and agents of film culture: before, during and after the exhibition.


Festival Archive

One of the association’s most important functions is organising 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 in Bonn - since 2005 at the Kunstmuseum Bonn. The participants included such pathfinders as Dara Birnbaum, Lynn Hershman, Klaus vom Bruch, Gary Hill, Keren Cytter, Marcel Odenbach, Bill Viola and Christian Jankowski. The heart of each festival is the exhibition with entries to the international competition as well as a festival programme with artist talks, lectures, presentations, screenings and performances.
