For the fourth time in eight years we reach the exciting moment when we get to share with all of you the longlist of projects that are nominated for the Visible Award. Once more, we couldn't have done it without our brilliant curatorial advisory board, whose choices amazed us also this year with an incredible, visionary and diverse list of names.
The visible screening program presents a selection of video works by artists from the visible network, that investigates the artistic production as an active agency in contemporary society, with its critical and future oriented aspirations. The different uses of video shed a light on the potential that is the motor to inspire new models to: bridge economic development and participatory artistic practices, unveil the functioning of social infrastructures, understand geopolitical issues and migration, reconsider the role of history in the present, interfere with the mediascape; all this often through the exploration of participatory and renewed democratic political models. These multiple points of view open up in the exhibition an area for reflection, where the visitor can perceive the artistic production as a field of action within the public sphere.
The Visible screening program has so far featured the works by: Alterazioni Video, Maayan Amir and Ruti Sela, Patrick Bernier & Oliver Martin, Jeanne Van Heeswijk, Helena Producciones, Jill Magid, Nastio Mosquito, Pedro Reyes, Marinella Senatore, Jonas Staal, Ming Wong, Wooloo.
