Festival Archive

One of the association’s most important functions is organising an international festival of video and time-based arts. Since it first took place in 1984, the VIDEONALE – Festival for Video and Time-Based Arts has been held every two years in Bonn - since 2005 at the Kunstmuseum Bonn. The participants included such pathfinders as Dara Birnbaum, Lynn Hershman, Klaus vom Bruch, Gary Hill, Keren Cytter, Marcel Odenbach, Bill Viola and Christian Jankowski. The heart of each festival is the exhibition with entries to the international competition as well as a festival programme with artist talks, lectures, presentations, screenings and performances.
