2. Video art from Germany - a VideoFest/transmediale Retrospective

This video programme contains only works that origin from the
transmediale, former VideoFest, Competition and that were produced in

The VideoFest had its premiere in 1988 in Berlin but since has grown to
an internationally renowned forum for the artistic video. Whilst in the
first years of its existence the German video productions outnumbered
largely the international submissions that were shown in the festival's
programme, this relation shifted in favour of productions from abroad in
the last years.
The artists contributing to this programme selection are protagonists
of video art and have moulded its development in Germany through
their individual style.
