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.


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.
