Video Digest - The Online Magazine

The online magazine Video Digest, initiated by Videonale and IMAI - Inter Media Art Institute, takes up impulses from historical video magazines (such as Infermental, Video Congress or Zapp Magzine) and uses a series of dialogically presented current works to examine the resistant potential of moving images in various communication channels from a contemporary perspective. The newly commissioned videos, performances and zines by Ji Su Kang-Gatto, Ayesha Hameed, Becket MWN, Rangwane and Leyla Yenirce (in collaboration with Mazlum Nergiz) make use of diverse languages and strategies of protest and mobili- zation (but also of apathy and resignation) and reflect a current video landscape shaped by on-demand smart TVs, YouTube/Youku, TikTok and Instagram.

All works can be seen together with issues of the historical video magazines Infermental, Video Congress and Zapp Magazine in an exhibition at the Moltkerei Cologne from 25.11.-10.12.2023.
