Art Basel Crowdfunding Initiative | Videotage: Sharing as a New Paradigm

Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre

24 Mar 201626 Mar 2016

The 21st century defines an emerging set of complex relationships between creativity, knowledge, capitalism, and innovative technologies. Today, we live in a world that revolves around networks and necessitates a belief in a future that is powered by the connection of people – a culture that embraces fluidity, collaboration, and creative mobility.

Videotage, founded in 1986, started out as an artist collective, and has developed itself into a network of media art and culture for cross-disciplinary cultural productions. To mark this year’s thirtieth year anniversary, Videotage announces the new initiative, Acentered: Reterritorised Network of European and Chinese Moving Image. Acentered will explore new sustainable ways of sharing knowledge, ideas and resources, in addition to increased participation in the arts through long-term international exchanges.

During Art Basel’s upcoming show in Hong Kong, the Art Basel Crowdfunding Lab will present Videotage. The Lab will feature video art works from the Videotage Media Art Collection, and also works from Casa Asia (Barcelona & Madrid), Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art/University of Salford Art Collection (Manchester), The Chinese University of Hong Kong/Department of Fine Arts, City University of Hong Kong/School of Creative Media, Connecting Spaces (Hong Kong-Zurich)/Zurich University of the Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University/Academy of Visual Arts, The Hong Kong Institute of Education/Department of Cultural and Creative Arts, Momentum (Berlin), and videoclub (London).

Videotage will also organize a series of roundtable discussions at the booth on a variety of hot topics in the art world today.
Besides the showcase, Videotage will work with local artists in Startup!, an “art experiment,”on the last day of the fair (26 March). The artists will be invited to present an art concept that they hope to develop, while the audience will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite.

Concurrently, Videotage will co-present Migrating Images with Momentum (Berlin) at Videotage, Cattle Depot Artist Village, as one of the satellite events during the week of Art Basel in Hong Kong. This exhibition addresses issues of memory, identity and the impact of migration through new media by Berlin and Hong Kong-based artists.
