TRANSMISSON ART FESTIVAL is an independently organized annual festival.
The aim of the festival is to convey contemporary positions of different media and to bring artists from different cities together through cooperation. Each year, the festival's elements are individually arranged and can include an exhibition, performances, readings, concerts, workshops and a video art festival. The aim of the Festival is to give an insight into the current video art production around the world.
The theme of 2017 edition is “We Are All in this Together – A Road Map Through a Post-Truth Art World”.
Does art have anything to contribute to the post-truth, post-democracy world? Is it the time for us to start producing noise, politicizing aesthetic practices or just turn full-time towards political activism? In the era of post-truth politics, alternative facts and fake news campaigns undermining our democracies, we would like to invite experimental film makers and video artists to take a stand in the overwhelming ethical ambiguity of our time.
The best videos submitted to our TRANSMISSION ART FESTIVAL open call will be made available through our online platform to an international audience during the festival period. Furthermore, the video works will be screened at selected venues.
