Call for Entries: VIDEONALE.18 – A Festival for Timebased Video Arts


VIDEONALE.18 – Festival for Video and Time-Based Media Arts
Call for Entries
March 4 – April 18, 2021
at Kunstmuseum Bonn, Germany

Deadline for submissions: June 30, 2020 (23:59 CET)

The Call for Entries for the Videonale.18 has begun and we cordially invite all artists and filmmakers to submit their works for the competition

The Videonale is one of the most significant festivals for experimental video and moving images. It is an important venue for artists, curators, collectors and the interested public, as well as a platform for discussing current themes and aesthetics of moving images. Unlike other festivals, the Videonale presents the selected works not in a cinema format but in a large-scale exhibition and thus reflects on the possibilities of presenting time-based art in the gallery space. The exhibition opening is followed by an extensive festival program that includes discursive events, performances, concerts, retrospectives, and networking events.

The VIDEONALE.18 is open for experimental works from the fields of single- and multi-channel video, video installation, performance, sound art, and virtual reality.

The works selected by an international jury are presented in an exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Bonn and an accompanying exhibition catalogue. All selected artists receive an exhibition fee and accommodation during the opening days and are given the opportunity to participate in the festival and networking events.

Artists of all nationalities and ages can submit up to three works each. There are no limitations on the duration and genre, but the submitted works may not be older than two years (produced after January 1, 2018).

An administration fee will be charged for each submission:
until June 14, 2020: 15 euros
after June 15, 2020: 25 euros

The Videonale award of the FLUENTUM COLLECTION endowed with 5,000 euros will be awarded among all selected works by an independent jury at the opening of the VIDEONALE.18.
