Shifting Distances. 2010 was our twentieth anniversary.  We described our precarious situation, which is similar to and shared with many other festivals, exhibitions and cultural events. Rather bruised, with reduced resources and a lower budget, we are still here to offer each other and you, our public, the pleasure of sounds and visions, the opportunity for experiencing a panorama of different images capable of inventing non-standard ways of describing, revealing, alluding, triggering off reflection.  With “Shifting Distances”: from a drop of water to the whole world; from a domestic interior to the problems of the planet.  In the internationally selected works for 2011, points of view come close and draw apart: in unusual ways they tell the story of people and places, a disastrous earthquake, the drama of anorexia, terrorism; but also the interferences between writing and music, cartoon and poetry, cinema and dance, finding ways of depicting worlds, faces, landscapes using material interwoven out of different codes of writing.  With nostalgia, affection, humour, energy, creativity, out of love for a small object right up to curiosity about the planet, the works in INVIDEO encourage our points of view on the world to become more flexible and mobile.

Together with the works come opportunities for closer study: a homage to the Living Theatre and one of their mythical performances in Dirk Szuszies’ video; a portrait of the percussionist Fritz Hauser in a video-musical documentary by Erich Busslinger; a complete personal showing of François Vogel, the enigma of electronic art, with his distorted spaces and visual rebuses; an initial encounter with Luciano Giaccari, a milestone in Italian videoart (in 2012 come the fortieth anniversary celebrations for his historical Videothèque); the works of Marco Bolognesi, between re-reading of science fiction movies, photography, contemporary art; a focus on “L’Alternativa”, the festival taking place in Barcelona at the same time as INVIDEO.
