From January 28 to March 04, 2011, the Deutscher Künstlerbund (Association of German Artists) will be showcasing a video project in the display windows of our project room in Berlin-Mitte. Through the development of video and display technologies, screens showing moving images are seen with increasing frequency in urban street spaces. These media surfaces - often assembled into multichannel media facades - also offer novel possibilities for art in the public sphere.
Under the title »WINDOWS II – Einblicke in das Videoarchiv des Deutschen Künstlerbundes« (»WINDOWS II – Insights into the Video Archive of the Deutscher Künstlerbund«), video artists Anna Anders and Maria Vedder have selected works by 15 artists from the video archive of the Deutscher Künstlerbund which seem to be especially suited to this special display of a window presentation.
The video archive was installed in 2007 in the project room of the Deutscher Künstlerbund. Meanwhile, this continuously growing, open-ended archive encompasses more than 300 works by more than 100 internationally recognized artists. Since its establishment, it has evolved into a major center for promoting and discussing video art and an information resource on media.
