About Bad Videoart Festival
Curators of the Bad Video Art Festival, Natalia Monakhova and Andrey Slaschilin,  propose to study extreme forms of video art. According to the curators, videos shown at the festival are at the intersection of bad art, bad painting and bad cinema (B-movies, cult, camp, trash) but still have not been introduced as an independent category for profound studying. As the issues of quality and boundaries of art are of topical interest, it is necessary to single out certain video art works as bad videos or “B-videos”. For the first time ever the conception of B-video will be presented to the public in the gallery in order to initiate a discussion and further studies.
