Founded in 1984, the biennial VIDEONALE today counts as one of the oldest and most renowned festivals of video art in the world. Participants include such trend-setting artists as Dara Birnbaum, Lynn Hershman, Marcel Odenbach, Michael Smith, Bill Viola and others. To this day VIDEONALE sees itself as a festival of national and international video art, both for ambitious young artists and for established artists.


At the 14th VIDEONALE between 40 and 50 works, chosen by an international jury of experts, will be presented during a seven-week exhibition in the Kunstmuseum Bonn. They will be supplemented by a curated section of video installations.


The numerous events of next year’s programme are meant to tempt visitors to VIDEONALE 14. In addition to the three-day opening programme, a large number of lectures, discussions with artists, screenings, performances, workshops and special presentations about artistic positions will take place during the seven weeks of the exhibition. Another feature of the festival programme is the VIDEONALE Party at the opening weekend.


Following the exhibition in the Kunstmuseum Bonn, the works displayed at VIDEONALE 14 will be presented in other international institutions as VIDEONALE ON TOUR. Works from VIDEONALE 13 could be seen at the Re:view Festival at Ars Cameralis in Katowice, Poland, at the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (NTMoFA), in Taichung, Taiwan and at the Gallery of Modern Art Glasgow, Scotland.
