Video Art Miden collaborates with TWIXTlab to present a selection of videoart programs in a 2-day event in Athens, on May 6-7, 2017.
The selected showcases of videoart, that will be screened during the event, are related to the general concept of TWIXTlab: “Art, Anthropology & the everyday”, having as their main theme different states of the “human condition” and highlighting contemporary anthropological issues, such as the phenomenon of “exoticizing”, the -globally current- refugee problem, as well as personal human stories (narrative or abstract) that brings us closer and connect us all.
For this presentation, we also invited Wilfried Agricola De Cologne to present a selection from the project “Refugee Film Collection” (CologneOFF).
