Video Art- and Shortfilmfest in Halle (Saale) Germany, 09. – 12. June 2011


Within the Project Facing the artwork – the viewer in moving images we call for artists to submit video/filmworks which deal with the topic of the perception and/or the perceiver of art. Our aim is to explore through the variety of artistic approaches the role and significance of the audience and the single viewer in relation to the artwork, to the artist and to the art system. We focus on the spectator as observed by the artist – and reflected by the medium of the moving images.

All European artists are invited to send their work.

For the details of the application criteria please read our application form.
