Athens Video Art Festival 7 – 9 June 2013

 The 9th International Festival of Digital Arts & New Media, “Athens Video Art Festival” is a fact. On June, 7th – 9th exhibitions, screenings, workshops and live acts will be hosted at the Historical Centre of Athens, opening a dialogue between public and private space.

Athens Video Art Festival 2013 takes advantage of the diversity, the versatility and the dynamics of the city, in order to activate, in terms of art and creativity, one of the most controversial parts of the city: a route between Theatrou Sq., Kotzia Sq., Agias Eirinis Sq. and Monastiraki Sq., in which a number of screenings, art interventions and co operations, will highlight a moving and continuously developing artists’ community.
Athens Video Art Festival broadens the collaboration with Academic Institutions, International Festivals and well known artists in order to create an international platform, where new tendencies on digital creations meet.
Athens Video Art Festival invited all contemporary artists to get inspired by the urban environment and the unlimited potential of the new media and participate with the aim of experimentation and release from any kind of stereotypes.
