The first AIVA 2012, Angelholm International Video Art Festival will take place in April 2012 and the main purpose of the festival is the free presentation, promotion and development of international video art and to create a new, alternative, peripheral meeting point for emerging and established video and media artists from all over the world. The festival will run for three days, from April 26th – 28th.
We hope to bring the Northwestern region of Scania in Sweden clearer on the map, both nationally and internationally, as a vivid scene of video art.
It is supposed to be a recurring event in addition to art offers cultural meetings that attract conversation about video art and its position in contemporary art.
In addition to screenings & installations of video art and performances, the festival invites international guest curators to curate programs of video art from North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia. These programs will be exhibited as projections in containers placed in the main square.
