LOOP Studies is a think tank platform aimed at reflecting on the historical trajectory of and current trends in moving art practices. In gathering together international art professionals, LOOP Studies consists of a series of talks, professional meetings and workshops and constitutes a space for both shared discussion and professional encounters.
Professional meetings are a series of closed-door debates within the framework of LOOP Fair. They provide room to local and international art professionals with like-natured practices to exchange knowledge and debate common interests through a series of informal talk-based networking sessions.
Keeping the discussion open about conception, production, curation and distribution of video-art at-large, some of the encounters will expand echoing this year’s LOOP Festival theme “A body’s journal” and will reflect about video art and the body: how the diversity of the existing bodies – physical, virtual, whether they are human or not – can be and be perceived in an extended way and also not always from an anthropocentric point of view.
By means of these gatherings and with that aim, individuals and organisms, public and private art practitioners will exchange on video creation and new types of moving image(s) arising.
