For the 2nd time, Video Art Miden organizes and presents a major online tribute to student and youth creation entitled The New New, in collaboration with 6 schools of fine arts and audiovisual arts from Greece. The first tribute took place in 2021 and, due to the great response, it is being repeated this year with new student projects, giving the public and the academic community throughout Greece the opportunity to watch a panorama of the recent student production, full of fresh ideas, experimentation and youthful expression.
This year, the tribute includes curated programs which present video works by undergraduate and/or postgraduate students of the following art schools:
– School of Visual & Applied Arts, Faculty of Fine Arts, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki,
– Department of Visual & Applied Arts – University of West Macedonia, Florina,
– Department of Visual Arts & Art Sciences – University of Ioannina,
– Department of Photography & Audiovisual Arts – University of West Attica, Athens,
– Department of Graphic Design & Visual Communication -University of West Attica,
– Department of Audio & Visual Arts – Ionian University, Corfu.
The student tribute will be accessible online from August 1 to September 30, 2023 on Video Art Miden’s youtube channel.
The tribute, which is coordinated by Gioula and Olga Papadopoulou, artistic directors of Video Art Miden, was presented in May 2023 at the Municipal Art Gallery of Thessaloniki-Casa Bianca, as part of the 2nd Video Art Projects in Thessaloniki, while sections of it are gradually being presented in other physical spaces (such as in the frame of Kalamata Street Festival). The main goal of the online presentation is to increase accessibility from every corner of Greece (but also worldwide), so that all students from different cities, as well as anyone interested, can watch the tribute. Already since its first edition in 2021, a basic aim of The New New tribute was the free online access, providing a platform for young artists to co-exhibit their work, discover diversities or common grounds and “talk” to each other, audiovisually, even from a distance, setting the base for a continuous dialogue about video art and audiovisual arts in Greece.
