III International Competition – Festarte VideoArt Festival

Deadline: July 20, 2010

Theme and Concept


Privat |Public | Social

Visual and poetical grammars to analyze a humanity that in order to transform itself needs to recover its roots.

Festarte challenges the artists to investigate on a kind of violence that doesn’t injure the body, that is not visible, that hurts without touching, that dims the mind, deteriorates the existence and the vital force. Perceiving it, uncovering it – a breath of freedom.

Prize money Euro 5.000
