Feelings are an essential part of human beings. But they have always been a source of conflict, for the inability to find a suitable tool to express them.
In our quest for ways to express themselves, we find art. Already in romanticism it was made clear that what distinguishes the artist from the common man is not his ability or expertise, but the intensity of his feelings; and this intensity is the only really value.
So we invite videoartists to explore the unstable territories of feelings, discussing new social, political, cultural, and aesthetic constellations, and to show us possible new languages or vocabularies to express everything we feel.
