An educational course of lectures and practical lessons to produce video art.

Within the framework of the Winter International Arts Festival in Sochi

Laboratory Professor: Antonio Geuza

Video Art Laboratory is an educational project comprising two parts: theory (history of international and Russian video art) and practical lessons (production of videos and organization of an exhibition).

Lessons are held in the form of lectures, discussions and workshops directed by Antonio Geuza, one of the most famous specialists in technological art in Russia. The Laboratory results will be presented to Sochi audience at an exhibition.

The Laboratory has two groups: Beginners (those who are not acquainted with video as an art practice) and Experienced Students (those who have previously participated in the Laboratory or have an experience of video processing).

In recent years, the video art as an artistic practice has taken a prominent place in museums and art galleries. Undoubtedly, professional artists and art amateurs perceive video as one of the most effective tools to represent our modern life, not saying about the possibility to quickly share videos via the Internet.

The Laboratory provides its students with a unique opportunity to become acquainted with the video art, and more importantly, to practice it.

The Winter International Arts Festival made Sochi a well-known place of video art on the map of contemporary art in Russia and abroad. The Winter Festival hosts the most long-lasting video-art festival in Russia ECHO-ECO (the Ninth Festival), and the Video Art Laboratory which was created for education and creative purposes (the Third Laboratory).

The Laboratory is absolutely free. It will take place from 15 to 22 February 2019. The Exhibition of works created in the Laboratory will be held on 23 and 24 February 2019.

Terms and conditions: the videos are made and processed at the participants’ devices – mobile phones and/or video cameras and PCs.
