VideoArt Festival Locarno: a Prospective

Exhibition catalog of “VideoArt Festival Locarno: a Prospective” organized by ECAL / François Bovier, Adeena Mey, Maud Pollien from August 8 to October 20, 2019, Centro culturale e museo Elisarion, Minusio.

This exhibition sheds new light on the history of the VideoArt Festival in Locarno by selecting video cassettes and installations presented in the framework of its first editions to reflect the renewed spirit of Monte Verità and its rich avant-garde and utopian experiences in the era of digital media. In addition to the archives and a reproduction of the circular homoerotic painting by Elisar von Kupffer which corresponds to the architecture of Elisarion, they present video works by international artists.

This exhibition and this publication are part of the research project “From Video Art to New Media: the Case of the VideoArt Festival Locarno (1980-2001)”, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
