Centro Cultural España-Córdoba

Coordinated by Gisela di Marco. Participants:

Table 1 Video: crossing territory
Gustavo Galuppo, Jorge Castro and Federico Falcó.
Video art related to other disciplines (music, literature, film) and attached to other genealogies. Video as a tool within other forms and expressive technologies
Table 2 Video projection, video formation and video circulation: personal experiences
Maximiliano Rossini, Armando Frezze and Federico Caram (Colectivo Arteproteico).
Experience and personal history: how do we become involved with audiovisual media. Video projection, formation and circulation today. Personal projects we are working in.
Table 3 Some questions around the art scene.
Soledad Dahbar and Carlos Herrera.
To what extent production and circulation of video are tainted by technologic fate? What if video was, due to the possibility to multiply and distribute itself, a succession of intangible codes and its autonomy lies there? Its immaterial and highly portable quality, does it make communications more rhizomatic? How is the history of Argentinean video art written in a context of centralized histories? Checking the scene means checking the ways of reception, and that influences how video is perceived as a genre.
Table 4 Checking the exhibition displays and the spaces for exhibition
Dolores Cáceres, Gonzalo Biffarella and Ana Claudia García
Different conceptualizations of time and place nowadays. Real spaces and virtual spaces: circulation, roaming and random paths. The screen as a place for statements. Real time and virtual space.
