International Video Art Festival – Cologne OFF 2014 @ Muzaplus

Cologne OFF X
Total art – Alienated Territories
Curator: Wilfried Agricola de Cologne

featuring a performative intervention by Markus Keim (Vienna/Austria)

Date:
Saturday September 13th, 2014
Hour: 20:00

Muzaplus – a space for art
Beit Eshel 15, Flea Market, Jaffa
Tel-Aviv/Istael

Muzaplus is pleased to host – Alienated Territories – a video art compilation which has been specially created for this event, by it German curator Agricola de Cologne, to celebrate the diversity of contemporary artistic creations on occasion of the Cologne OFF- International Video art Festival – “Total Art – GesamtkunstwerkIt” 10th anniversary.

The festival activities are the creative enterprise of the media artist Wilfried Agricola de Cologne, the founder, director and curator of Cologne OFF – Cologne International Video art Festival, which includes ten editions of an exciting media festival.

Agricola de Cologne explains that the submitted video works follow the idea of the “total art work”, which uses an individual audiovisual language, and so the medium of digital video in all its technological complexity, in order to present to the public with a variety of content, expressing philosophical, political, cultural or artistic statements through a critical view on the present, sometimes of ironic tone and with an humoristic tone, but with a serious and meaningful artistic approach.

The selection that will be presented at Muzaplus indicates, as its curator writes: “one’s identity as a protected and restricted area, an essential component determining the perception of life as a process from the subjective point of view of the creator, as well as the viewer in cultural, social or political concern.”

is happy to launch on Thursday, 4 September 2014

CologneOFF X

10th Cologne International Videoart Festival
http://coff10.newmediafest.org

under the motto – “Total Art ” (Gesamtkunstwerk)

On occasion of the collaboration with Institut fuer Alles Moegliche Berlin on 4 September 2014,
CologneOFF is launching in 2014 its 10th festival edition.

Founded in 2005 by Wilfried Agricola de Cologne, director of artvideoKOELN international, the characteristics of CologneOFF were from the beginning to be an experimenting platform for finding the ideal concepts for preseting “art & moving images” to an audience.

As a festival travelling to most different venues in an exchange between virtual and physical space, CologneOFF is a global networking project
to be realised in cooperation with international cooperating partners all over the world.
The festival is not reduced to the usual running time of 2 or 3 days at a single venue, but running all over the year including up to 32 physical venues, and 7 days a week and 24 hours a day via the online component offering viewers/users the videos of the complete festival programs for review.

CologneOFF X is standing under the motto of “Total Art” (Gesamtkunstwerk) featuring 175 works by audio visual creators from 30 countries
who follow the ideas of “Gesamtkunstwerk” in most individual ways, demonstrating the richness & diversity of digital video as an artistic medium in the progrms, entitled:
Alienated Territories, Alienated Memory, Alienated Identities, Alienated Timelines, One Minute Wonder, Brave New World.

While the festival started 2014 already during the submission phase in July in Greece @ Videart Festival Miden,
today, the official launch of CologneOFF X will take place on occasion and in the context of the collaboration with Institut fuer Alles Moegliche in Berlin
under the topic “Brave New World” – http://bnm.i-a-m.tk – 4 September 2014, 19h.

After an exciting decade of an incredible media development and curatorial experimenting,
the 10th festival will be the final edition of this unusual festival project from Germany, running at least until 2016.
But it is not the end of CologneOFF, because it will be maintained as a curatorial format by artvideoKOELN international.

At this stage, CologneOFF – Cologne International Videoart Festival would like to thank
all artists and video makers, cooperating curators and networking partners all over the world
for the confidence in the project and its continuously changing concepts, which made the festival so successful.
Thanks to all! It was such a great time!
