A selection curated collectively by the 5 basic curators of Video Art Miden’s latest edition, “Manifestations” brings together 10 video art works that explore different aspects of life and the subtext behind common and seemingly ordinary actions, movements, thoughts and things that surround us. The works follow and record discretely human psychological and behavioral routines, intersecting with great sensibility various human transactions and social interactions, from personal to collective and ultimately to universal.

Curatorial statement
In these times of the pandemic many people become aware of the restrictions of the “usual”. Those things which were taken for granted before receive suddenly an unusual status. Time seems to be paralyzed, set in quarantine – or is it just a paradigm shift?
The program of the selected videos is a composition of different aspects of time in all their contradictions according to an artistic view manifested in 13 art videos by
Karin & Didi Fromherz, Ronnie Sluik, Jason Jenn, Alexandra Anikina, Brit Bunkley, Johannes C.Gerard, Louise Coetzer, Arie & Ben David Sigal, Lisi Prada, Shahar Marcus & Hagit Großman, Farid Hamedi, Vojislav Radovanovi?, Katya Yakubov
