Arab mixed media artists
Information (Under Construction)
Since the 1990s, video creation in Arab culture countries has witnessed constant growth and renewal. The specific political and social conditions of these communities, their deeply-rooted narrative and poetic traditions (written and oral), as well as a decisive presence of music and ritual have all allowed these works to encompass a very wide-ranging field of experimentation and reflection in which a fascination with technology is mixed with a sense of poetry and rhythm, the use of silence, and the ability to speak to us directly or metaphorically of their individual or communal realities.
This window, will be dedicated to Arab media artists, who we know most of them work under difficult creative conditions. Young Arab filmmakers, video and mixed media art artists who are exploring paths of subjective expression with a fragile and anxious freedom.
