Paadmaan Video Event
Paadmaan Video Event is an International periodical that surveys current video-based forms of art as an expansive, multi-venue event born in Tehran, Iran. This open call seeks to explore video as a primary, medium specific artform, as well as documentations of recent and emergent works of art including performance, installation, new media and video art in general. Organized by Paadmaan Projects, the Event considers ‘video’ as it’s central theme.
The Event is organized by two sections or categories:
• Video Art
• Video Documentation of Art
Video Art – any time-based electronic form that relies on video technology as a visual and audio medium. Open to all work (narrative, experimental, non-narrative) that is reflexive and utilizes video as the principal medium in expression. Works that feature a moving image paired with sound through the dimension of time as a primary mode of working.
Video Documentation of Art – Any work that makes use of video as a documentary medium to present, experience and disseminate an original work of art. This includes any work that combines with or utilizes video as a vehicle, device or medium to document an existing artwork – wherein the original form relies on video as a surrogate, or intermediary representation to experience and consider the original work. Examples might include performance, installations, ephemeral works, etc.
The event is interested in reviewing and featuring subjects in video that challenge conventional and existing methods of working and critical inquiry. Within the video documentation of art category, priority is given to works that exemplify the inherent challenges, decision-making and creative strategies used to translate the original work through the medium of video. Paadmaan Video Event is performed in collaboration with itinerant venues to create an open-ended, alternative platform for video screenings, cultural engagement and discourse of interdisciplinary forms in video. The resulting project will be archived and specific work may be screened in other Paadmaan events and iterations.
