Video as art opens portals to other realities and to the experiences of others.

The 8th nodoCCS Video Festival returns to its on-site proposal in the city of Caracas, reaffirming its intention to "sustain and inhabit spaces" to generate encounters in a fragmented world.

The experience of the past years inspired us to go beyond the exhibition space and expand the physical locations of our projections, to generate global dynamics, new ways of collaborating and above all to articulate our work to this new reality.

This year's program will feature new dynamics of selection and arrangement of the works, exploring the metaphor of the portal as a curatorial form through which, on the one hand, we try to get in touch with specific modes of experience, histories, communities and world-building practices, and, on the other hand, we reflect on the preconditions, thresholds, regulation and the fundamental function of video as a gateway to other realities. In thinking about video as a portal and world-building practice, questions of access and exclusion must inevitably be addressed. What creates permeability? Who is addressed? Who has access and how is access governed? And who possesses the material and immaterial resources to be able to create portals and the worlds behind them in the first place?

Open Call VII Festival Video nodoCCS

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

The word node can refer to different concepts depending on the field in which we move. Since we started being nodoCCS, our realities have transformed at an exponential rate, changing our way of being, thinking and interacting and modifying our expectations about our role and about the world around us.

nodoCCS presents itself as an open, artist-run platform that seeks to "create and maintain spaces" in which diverse groups and communities feel welcome to become more than the sum of their parts, and to shape porous spaces that explore the worlds of our existence, from different perspectives. 

As every year we will bring together an eclectic and diverse group of people to share their videos. Poets, explorers, artists, the misrepresented and the forgotten will be part of the journey, creating digital content that will lead to offline and online events in Caracas and/or beyond. 

We will practice new ways of coming together, expanding the scope of our imagination through new ways of collaborating to create and maintain spaces around video with the intention of finding urgent issues that inspire and concern us all.

Last year's experience inspired us to go beyond the gallery space and expand the physical locations of our screenings, generate global dynamics, new ways to collaborate and above all articulate our work to this new reality. This year's Festival programming will feature online viewing rooms, panel discussions with selected authors, experimental rooms and face-to-face events that will take place between November and December 2021, a hybrid programming that everyone can be part of no matter where they are physically located. 

The VII Festival de Video nodoCARACAS takes these ideas as a basis to propose its VII Video Festival, which by reinventing itself once again reaffirms its intention to "hold spaces'' for the encounter in a fragmented and strange world that inspires us to continue creating.

Open Call VI Festival Video nodoCCS 2020

Artistic field:

Eligibility:

In the words of writer Arundhati Roy, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine a new world. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next. In these uncertain times, we all have a cultural, artistic and social function in our world, the best we can do for art and society is to put ourselves at its service and not use it to to our own benefit but, through poetic and political imagination, find answers and generate other relationship systems that are part of the solution and not the problem.

 

The VI nodoCARACAS Video Festival is based on these ideas to propose its VI Video Festival, which this year will take place in Kristiansand (Norway) between November 13 and 22 in the spaces of 51K Arteriet and at the same time it will be broadcast live in other cities of the world.

 

nodoCCS is therefore presented as a collaborative project of two artists whose main focus is the Festival de Video nodoCCS: from which the programs, curatorships, meetings, exchanges, exhibitions and collaborations proposed by our founders are born in the place where they are located, in the cities where you are invited. To date nodoCCS has made its programming and its festival in Caracas (Venezuela), Lima (Peru), Bogotá (Colombia), Miami (USA), Berlin (Germany), Madrid (Spain), Karazin (Ukraine), Mexico City and Athens (Greece).

 

Since 2015 and until now there are several roles that nodoCCS has had, moving around places and countries, inhabiting spaces of an institutional and emerging nature, collaborating with people and artists to carry out: our Festival, meetings, screenings, exhibitions and conversations.
