While following the idea of adding to the retrospective analysis of video art history, Timescapes proposes a spatio-temporal itinerary through the 2017 LooP Festival. Stemming from the collaboration between the Barcelona-based artist Erick Beltrán (Mexico City, 1974) and curator and researcher Diana Padrón (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, 1984), this proposal originates from an investigation that is centred on three main axis—the historical events, the artistic context and the formats of video—and it will unfold chronologically through the very means of communication deployed by the festival: wall texts, the Selected publication, the website and the edition of an insert that accompanies this guide.
