In collaboration with the Czech Centre in Seoul – and specifically for this year’s Seoul International New Media Festival – the Videoarchive project curatorial team has prepared two programmed sessions focusing on the last two decades of Czech video art.

The first, titled Out of Hands: Works of Czech Female Artists, presents audiovisual works by established Czech artists who capture and reflect on the structures of contemporary society using the moving image medium. The second session focuses on the last two decades and presents a cross-section of various tendencies including the analysis of the moving image as a complex medium, its deconstruction and transformation, and its significance as a source and space for individual imagination.
