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.

Talks

The talks unfold into a series of conversations, lectures and open discussions around moving image and beyond. Throughout the years, the programme shifted from having a strict focus on the medium specificity to encouraging an open and inclusive reflection on creative processes as well as the social, cultural and economic implication of art at large. 

LOOP Talks 2019

Following this development, the 2019 edition of the Talks will gather together artists, curators and collectors to discuss a variety of different topics such as the crossovers between politics and art, the socialization of private institutions and collections, precarity and resistance and the preservation of cultural heritage.

Professional Meetings

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.

Professional meetings 2019

This year’s Professional meetings, ‘DOING CONTEXT(S)’, will focus on environments of creating with a nod to LOOP Festival ‘Even Outer Space’. While reflecting on video art production at large, the train of thought articulating the meetings is a reflection on space and time, and the manners they shape our actual and possible contexts. By means of these gatherings and with that aim in view, individuals and organisms, public and private art practitioners will exchange for three days on how, where and when moving image is being done today.
