Les Instants Vidéo is an event dedicated to video art and electronic poetry with its multiple forms, monobands, installations, performances, multimedia, etc. It is all together a festival and a laboratory where international renowned artists and works of arts can meet with works that are more fragile, still in progress, delicates. In order to support real encounters between works of art, artists and spectators, there is no competition and the admission is free.
The event is made of different spaces of time. The international Encounters take place in Friche la Belle de Mai in Marseilles (in November). Every year, this central part of the event welcome more and more spectators, in a space we try to make as friendly as possible. And either before and after these dates, Les Instants Vidéo act in concert with partners to organise the festival stopovers in other spaces in Marseille, the area…and abroad.
Call for submissions 2016:
State of Poetic Emergency
Video and digital arts are today developing in a very worrisome international, social and political context. Fear of foreigners. Decline of civil liberties. Fright of human passions. Desires of emancipation under security control. Management nonsense is the rule. Electronic poetry invents new languages to think the world differently and to take part in its transformation. Let’s declare the State of Poetic Emergency. We expect the 29th festival to be unbridled, inventive, with no taboo, cosmopolitan, sensitive, serious and joyous…
Looking forward to receiving your video installations, single channel or performance proposals.
We will inform you about the place and date of screening of your work by september 2016.
Greetings from the infinitely blue shores (sometimes tainted with red) of the Mediterranean sea.
