Fluid States. Solid Matter

04.03. - 18.04.2021

In its exhibition, the VIDEONALE.18 - Festival for Video and Time-Based Art presents 31 international artistic positions in the field of video and moving image. In an architecture especially designed for the exhibition by Ruth Lorenz of maaskant Berlin, these individual positions including numerous room installations together form a complex narrative about the state of our world. The artists reflect - often from a very personal perspective - on the major themes of our future such as migration(s); our way of dealing with natural, animal and human resources; body and identity politics, and the question of how one is related to the other.
