LOOP is an independent platform dedicated to foster video art, artitsts’ films and moving image practices.

Founded in 2003, the platform is -since its creation- a pioneer experimental space open up to innovative attitudes and approaches that offers a specialized audience a curated selection of video-related content from challenging perspectives.

Following the founding principle of casting light on the current trends in video art and presenting these to the general public, LOOP continues to focus on the advancement of aspiring young artists, while also presenting established positions of video art.

LOOP teams up with an international community of gallerists, artists, curators, collectors and institution directors to develop projects worldwide which aim to explore critically the capacities of video and film in today’s contemporary art discourses and contribute to the exchange of ideas that drive the artworld forward.

Every year, LOOP hosts LOOP Barcelona, the main meeting point and highlight for the international video art community that through its three sections -Fair, Festival & Studies-, brings together an accurate selection of contemporary video art works, premieres new productions, features exhibitions, specific projects and screenings, and displays a large programme of talks dealing with current discussions and positions of video art.

Throughout the year, LOOP undertakes a myriad of projects that develops in collaboration with leading international agents and that materialize in different formats and locations: from comissioned projects to touring exhibitions in leading venues, programmes of talks and screenings, among others.

LOOP is also home to a living archive of video and film resources accessible online that includes vast documentation on relevant topics for the video studies: from papers, video recordings, interviews, publications and a growing cartography of the agents of the video art field.
