Videonale: Changing City – Shifting Spaces
Videonale Bonn and Video Art Network (VAN) Lagos join forces to present the project Videonale in Lagos: Changing City – Shifting Spaces.
The project is an initiative of KfW Stiftung which wishes to contribute to the ongoing development of new media artistic practice in Nigeria by supporting local up-and-coming talents in establishing international contacts. It is realised in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Nigeria and the Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA), Lagos.
When looking at today’s globalised, digital realities the language of the moving image has become a universal tool to comment and reflect on the ever-shifting spaces of everyday life. With the topic Changing City – Shifting Spaces, Videonale in Lagos explores the dynamics of urban space in a video art workshop for artists based in Nigeria, led by the internationally acclaimed Anglo-Ethiopian video artist Theo Eshetu in collaboration with the Nigerian artist/curator Jude Anogwih (VAN Lagos), as well as an exhibition featuring Nigerian and international artists curated by Jude Anogwih (VAN Lagos) and Tasja Langenbach & Jennifer Gassmann (Videonale Bonn).
