“The more that I see, the less that I know for sure.”
— John Lennon

The I SEE International Video Art Festival is an initiative of the artists Constantin Hartenstein and Clemens Wilhelm, launched in 2013. In 2015, the second edition of the I SEE International Video Art Festival will once again reveal the latest developments in contemporary video art. The festival will be launched in Berlin (Germany) and then travel to Beijing, Guangzhou and Shenzhen (China) to connect these four vibrant video art scenes.

Focusing on four main curatorial themes, the presented videos will give a fascinating insight into how artists deal with the current challenges and opportunities of the digitalized world we live in.

The festival sets out to present groundbreaking video art works by emerging and well-known international artists who examine the impact of technological and aesthetic inventions. Three screening programs — “THE  END  OF THE IMAGE  AS  WE  KNOW  IT”,  “POST  EVERYTHING”,  “THE ANIMAL  WITHIN” — present unique artistic approaches to animalistic instincts, the omnipresent influence of technology on society and concepts of post-futures.

In addition, the program „AUTO  ANALYSIS“ will present a selection of seven works from the Momentum Collection that explore the relationship between a subject and its self-perception towards transformative environments.
