VIVA Festival
Biennale of Amsterdam

May 10 -12 2008

Location: Cinema Ketelhuis

In this world of globalisation, where we believe that the internet informs us about mostly everything and we hardly take the necessary time to live, video art is a form of art which asks the viewer for reflection and time to see the work until its end instead of just walking by.

The VIVA Festival was conceived to create an itinerant meeting point where international video artists will find a space for their intellectual discourse in the visual arts, creating a net all over the world in collaboration with international curators, foundations, galleries, private collections and institutions to be able to bring the best of international works and is organised to promote artists worldwide through a personal invitation to participate.
Most of the video artists have been confronted to the impossibility of presenting there single channel video works as they believed they should be presented, having to adapt themselves to the traditional expositive structure were the “passing by observer” due to the exhibition format, disrupts the view of there works.

In front of this option the VIVA Festival propouses the “Festival Format” as the best procedure to show the works, taking in consideration the time and structure of the single channel pieces which should be seen from the begin to be able to understand there meaning.

Without an integrating discourse which pretends to unify the works, selected exclusively because of there quality, there intellectual dissertation and there capacity to transform the point of view of the viewer, the single channel pieces which are shown at the VIVA Festival should be enjoyed by the Viewer as independent from each other.

In this new wave of experimental forms of expression and opening up to the totality of the world as a scenario of the hole, were near and far are no more a criteria to stop the communication, the VIVA Festival sees the world as a stage where it finds it way - in conventional and non conventional spaces - to reach also an audience which does not take any frontier as insuperable.

Artists from all over the world confronted in spaces all over the world making an international interchange possible, which dissolves all the barriers, is the main criteria to entail in this project.
