MEDIA AND VIDEO ART EXHIBITION 8/9 MAY 2015
We are pleased to invite you to the annual VKunst on 8/9 May 2015 from 8 pm till 12pm.
In May 2015, vkunst Frankfurt will once again explore current trends and tendencies in video art. For the seventh time, almost all galleries as well as some shops in Frankfurt‘s Fahrgasse will be host of the “roof- less exhibition hall” right next to the Frankfurt Museum für Moderne Kunst.
Defiant it may sound, but also hopeful, the headline "ich bleibe" - "I stay, I remain" of vkunst 2015. Two words that remind of the slogan of a rebellious youth culture. A culture, an attitude that is not prepared to be displaced - not from its quarters, not from the minds of their time, not from their positions.
But "ich bleibe" is also the anxious response to transience. To the transience of ourselves and to the transience of our time.
Is it not art, of all things, that stands up to transience?
"ich bleibe" may express both deep confidence and fundamental uncertainty. What aspects in this spectrum do the artists focus on? Investigating this is the task of vkunst frankfurt 2015.
