Since 2005, the Videonale - Festival for Video and Time-based Art Forms has been held at the Kunstmuseum Bonn on an exhibition space of over 800sqm. The works selected as part of the competition are presented as individual presentations in the space. After an open CALL FOR ENTRIES, an international jury will review all submitted works and decide on participation. All selected works will be presented in a six-week exhibition and in an accompanying exhibition catalog.
Together with an exhibition designer, an independent exhibition architecture is developed for each edition, which responds to the works, their themes and technical features and at the same time invites the visitor into a specially created spatial atmosphere for the duration of the visit to the exhibition. In the interplay between scenography and curatorial location in space, a dense parcours of audiovisual artistic works emerges, all of which stand on their own and yet in dialogue with each other.
Since VIDEONALE.15, the exhibition design for the rooms at Kunstmuseum Bonn has been developed by Ruth Lorenz maaskant Berlin. Information on the exhibition design of past Videonale is available here: exhibition architecture
