• 18 h 30 • 6.30pm FemLink: The Videocollage

30 artists from 30 countries


The FemLink's structure is simple: one artist from each country will
create a short video (2mn max.) around a common theme.
In 2006, the theme is "Fragility". The resulting video collage project builds a link throughout the world between women video artists and their work.
30 videos from 30 artists from 30 countrie

Das Konzept von FemLink ist simpel. Eine Kuenstlerin pro Land erstellt einen kurzen (max. 2 min) Film zu einem gemeinsamen Thema.
In 2006 ist "Fragility" (Zerbrechlichkeit) das Thema aller Videoarbeiten.
Die resultierende Collage aus Videos versteht sich als Bruecke zwischen den Kuenstlerinnen und ihren Herkunftslaendern.
