The central axis of the selection is “space”. The space is poetic and, as such, it is created and gets status by the movement of bodies or objects in it and /or by settling them in contra-roles and symbolic atmospheres.
Move In(space) was first presented in Festival Miden’s parallel events 2013, last July at CAMP-Contemporary Art Meeting Point, Athens, GR.

Festival Miden*, the first Greek video art festival presented in open public spaces, is an annual video art & new media cultural event held in Kalamata, GR. It is an independent organization founded, organized and curated by a team of contemporary Greek artists.
Since 2005, Festival Miden has been gradually established as one of the most successful and interesting video art festivals in Greece and abroad and has been a significant point of cultural exchange for Greek and international video art, creating an alternative, peripheral meeting point for emerging and established video artists.
(*Miden means “zero” in Greek)
