"We are looking for video art which, today, is already part of  
tomorrow's breeding ground," says Georg Elben, curator of the  
VIDEONALE 12. Quo vadis video art - this is the question the  
VIDEONALE at the Bonn Kunstmuseum has addressed every two years since  
1984. As of now all artists are invited to apply for the VIDEONALE 12  
with a video created in the past two years.

One of the oldest festivals for video art in the world, VIDEONALE 12  
will present the latest trends in video art from 26 March to 26 April  
2009. There is no set topic for submissions, but only single-channel  
works can be entered. VIDEONALE 12 will open with a four-day festival  
featuring a variety of events. The exhibition will run for four  
weeks, showcasing 40 to 50 video works chosen by an international  
jury. VIDEONALE has "Š always had the advantage, as a kind of film  
festival for video art, of being able to provide a realistic  
assessment of the current filmic state of development of this genre.  
That is what defines its function as an aesthetic gauge." (K.WEST)  
The works featured at VIDEONALE 12 will be shown in other  
international institutions following the exhibition at the Bonn  
Kunstmuseum; the works chosen for VIDEONALE 11 were, among others,  
shown in 2007 at the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid and 2008 at the  
Bangalore Goethe Institut.

"Thinking outside the box - the Bonn videonale is looking for new  
ways of presenting video art," (Süddeutsche Zeitung) - VIDEONALE is  
particularly interested in developing new forms of presentation for  
video art beyond the black box. For the past years each VIDEONALE has  
commissioned a new team of architects and designers to create an  
innovative exhibition design, both technically and artistically, for  
presenting the exhibition in the context of a museum. "We are happy  
about the attention and broad recognition from the specialist  
audience we have received in the last years for our pioneering work  
in this field where, so far, only a small number of convincing  
approaches have been found," says Georg Elben.

The videos presented at VIDEONALE 12 will automatically be taking  
part in the competition for the videonale award worth 5.000 euros  
which will be awarded by a second international jury. Application  
deadline is 31 August 2008. All information and entry forms can be  
found at www.videonale.org
