Videoart Festival Locarno


From to

The exibition Videoart Festival Locarno: A Prospective, curated by Ecal / François Bovier, Adeena Mey, Maud Pollien,  sheds a new light on the history of the VideoArt Festival Locarno, by selecting video tapes and installations presented in the context of its first editions to reflect on a renewed spirit of the Monte Verità and its rich avant-garde and utopian experiments in the age of electronic media.
