Call for entries – deadline 1 September 2008
VideoChannel – video project environments is glad to launch a new videoart project entitled „MOTHER“, and invites video and film creators for participating and contributing. excerpt of the announcement:
„Mother“ as a theme, refers in first place to everybody’s mother or grandmother and their meaning to the creator. Every human being is a child of a mother, without the mother there is no family , no tribe, no people, no society, no social future. But mother can be interpreted also in different ways, the language uses „mother“ in electronics for instance in „motherboard“ or in a figurative sense as the roots or basics of being. VideoChannel always tried to bring a very personal note into the otherwise anonymous online enviroment via its videoart projects related to „memory & identity“, and the subject of „Mother“ is particularly intimate and personal. Like all VideoChannel projects also „Mother“ is planned to be presented online and in physical space via screenings after its launch in October/November 2008.
