The selection of videos and films was made by Daniela Palimariu in collaboration with Raluca Voinea, Farid Fairuz and HAU Hebbel am Ufer and presented as part of of salonvideo.
“salonvideo” is a flexible platform for video art, primarily open to artists from Romania. The project was initiated by Daniela Palimariu and Dan Basu in 2012 in Bucharest, and is now run together with Luminita Apostu. salonvideo’s first edition was a research one, following a free – theme open call – while the next three episodes focused on specific approaches, like The Double, Rituals and Matters of Method. The last of these took place in Iasi in 2013 and presented about 30 video and sound works from Romanian and international artists, spread over three locations in the city – tranzit.ro/ Iasi, the art galleries at BCU and Meru art space. In 2014 salonvideo will take place in the context of two larger events – R.A.M. Media Arts Festival, organized by Kinema Ikon in Arad and at HAU in Berlin.
Aside from the variations of location and theme, each “salonvideo” edition seeks to present video art with a slightly different approach than the one before, to introduce young artists that work with video and to research various understandings of the medium itself. salonvideo.net Programme overview
