VisualcontainerTV is glad to host a videoart selection from 22nd edition of Les Instants Video, one of the most interesting videoart festival in Europe.

“Video art versus realities”
Video art has always been a matter of crossing of ideas. An artist explores social and political realities, poetic worlds, specific territories…. and he gives his point of view on it. What is a point a view ? Not at all an opinion. Indeed, the artist is not a journalist, neither a sociologist.
The point of view creates an interval between the artist and what he is filming. Within this inbetween gap, the possible of a language, the cinematic-writing, a thought in action will find their way.
The program we present invites the spectator to travel thanks to different points of view from Kirghizstan, Palestine, England or France… and to explore our contemporary world.
