art:screen (Sweden) on FlatScreen

1 March – 1 April 2011

Tuesday – Friday, 11am-5pm

Canteen Gallery 2

art:screen’s single-channel screenings typically consist of a programme of short works: visual portraits of today’s political, social and cultural difference. This programme of contemporary Swedish video artists has been specially compiled for FlatScreen on invitation by Beaconsfield.

art:screen is a platform that showcases new and innovative contemporary moving image from Swedish and international artists, in co-operation with a range of international video festivals and art organisers. art:screen also provides programmes for Swedish art institutions and associations that want to broaden their art activities to include video.

art:screen was started in 2005 under the name “Art Video Screening”. Art Video Screening initiated and was the lead co-ordinator of Örebro International Videoart Festival 2008 and 2010, in collaboration with art institutions in Örebro. From 2012, art:screen will lead art:screen fest: which invites curators from around the world to contribute moving image programmes to the festival, at the same time hosting an international networking opportunity.
