NOW&AFTER’20
THE 10TH INTERNATIONAL VIDEO ART FESTIVAL

It focuses on the presentation, development and promotion both Russian and international video art, getting together emerging and established artists from around the world to present their works to general audience.

The theme of Now&After’20 is THE POSSIBILITY OF COLOR. Artists don’t need words to express their sense of color. In their works, video artists from different countries explore color as a social, emotional or cultural metaphor for real and virtual worlds, memory and the possibilities of the future.

Common Ground Project, Belgium
Curated by Kika Nicolela

Common Ground is a collaborative project created by Kika Nicolela and supported by Transcultures Pépinières Européennes de Création.
It’s the beginning of a new decade, and the human species faces an invisible, faceless, brainless yet highly efficient enemy: a virus that menaces our lives and our way of life. The tendency is to attempt to return to «normality» as quickly as possible, and to forget this period. Alternatively, we see the COVID-19 crisis and all that it triggered, as an opportunity to reflect on some essential political, economic, ethical and metaphysical questions.

The Common Ground Project proposes a creation of a growing database, with the collaboration of artists around the world, sharing video, sound and/or text-based pieces. The main immediate goal is to collect a large and varied snapshot of the impact of this crisis from various corners of the planet, to realize how people are coping with the lockdown and the post-lockdown, but above all, how we can use this crisis as an opportunity to reshape the world.

The project will have its first public presentation at the International Video Art Festival Now&After’20 in Moscow.

Kika Nicolela is a Brazilian artist, filmmaker and independent curator based in Brussels since 2014. Graduated in Film and Video by the University of Sao Paulo, Kika Nicolela has also completed a Master of Fine Arts at the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHDK). She was the recipient of several prominent Brazilian and Belgium grants and awards. Since 2008, Kika Nicolela also curates and coordinates the Exquisite Corpse Video Project, an ongoing collaborative series of videos that involves more than 90 artists from 30 countries.

Over The Real International Video Art Festival, Italy
Curated by Maurizio Marco Tozzi

This festival was born in 2015 from an idea by Maurizio Marco Tozzi and Lino Strangis. Over The Real presents the most significant areas of research that have emerged in recent years in international audiovisual arts. Every year the works are selected by an important panel of curators. Over The Real takes place at historical locations around Lucca (Italy). The Festival also presents installations, multimedia performances, workshops and talks with the participation of important artists and media art experts.

This selection presents some of the most interesting authors who have participated in the last editions of Over The Real. These are artists who contribute to the evolution of the aesthetic and semantic abilities of different video art languages. Their works illustrate new visions to escape a world full of loneliness, violence, and an unbalanced economy and also invite the public to seek a new awareness and balance, overcoming the thresholds of perception and the space-time dimension. Something truly profound seems to happen in the faint darkness of the human condition, and sometimes a small breath can change things.

Maurizio Marco Tozzi is a contemporary art curator. He has focused his research on the audiovisual language and the relationship between creativity and new technologies. He has curated exhibitions in important galleries and museums and he regularly takes part in lectures and talks about contemporary art. His last essays are: Gianni Melotti, art/tapes/22 video tape production (Giunti publisher, 2017), and The Italian Video Art (Danilo Montanari publisher, 2016). He is a lecturer in Digital Culture at Alma Artis Academy of Pisa.
