During its ten years long history the International Festival of Digital Arts and New Media, Athens Video Art Festival, had the outstanding honor to receive more than 14.500 artworks submitted by 9.500 artists from around the world hosting more than 2.000 in the context of its annual editions.
From 2011 to 2013 a complete and dynamic of the participating artists has been developed expressing gratitude for their valuable support that they have provided for the festival’s realization as well as its continuous evolution. The festival archive aims at the most possible contact between the audience and the artists with the history of Athens Video Art Festival forming a dynamic ecosystem eager to be developed and grow bigger.
By archiving the participating artists the festival provides the visitor with the opportunity to backdate the past editions witnessing the geographic range of the submissions, the differentiation of themes, techniques, means of production and artists’ development through years.
The festival archive is a work in constant formation following artistic trends open to further development, welcoming the second decade of existence Athens Video Art Festival.
