Cologne OFF 2011-UKRAINE is taking place between 14 and 20 March 2011 in Kiev & Kharkiv (or Kharkov).

The event is curated by Wilfried Agricola de Cologne, director of the nomadic festival CologneOFF and is a collaboration of “CologneOFF 2011 – videoart in a global context” with the Goethe Institut Ukraine Kiev, the Center for Contemporary Art Foundation Kiev, Media Lab Kiev, Kharkiv City Art Gallery, Nuremberg House Kharkiv and Kharkiv National University.

In this frame, Festival Miden presents on March 19 at the City Art Gallery of Kharkiva screening program entitled “Less-Time-Less”, curated by Gioula Papadopoulou & Giorgos Dimitrakopoulos.

“Less-Time-Less” is a selection of videos from Video Art Festival Miden, Kalamata, Greece. It presents 15 videos by 15 contemporary artists from Greece, Italy, Germany, Israel, Slovakia, Belgium, Norway, France, Slovenia and Canada. All videos deal with the perception of time and the fluidity of this perception. They approach various aspects of life and human experience,
capturing time, alternating and transforming time, stretching time, bending time, blending time, visualizing memories, histories, thoughts and desires. Creating “time choreographies”, the works included in this unit lead us into a poetic universe of parallel time flows, in a “time-less” or “less-timeless”
video journey.

Participant artists: Ioanna Myrka, Giorgos Dimitrakopoulos, Lukas Matejka, Dimitris Gakis, Guy Yitzhaki,  Claudio Stellato, Tilman Kuentzel, Alessandro Vitali, Ivar Smedstad, Jean-Gabriel Periot, Nicolas Wiese, Gioula Papadopoulou, Bryan Lauch & Petra Pokos, Makis Faros, Anna Woch.
