Video Art

Photography is extremely popular in the region and video art is its logical extension and a precursor to filmmaking.

World-renowned video artists conduct practical production workshops supported by screenings and installations, exploring a non-linear, avant-garde approach to visual expression. Leading the workshop this year is Turkish artist Koken Ergun, who studied in Istanbul and London before working with American theatre director Robert Wilson. Ergun, who specializes in contemporary art, specifically video and performance, worked with ten students (out of 50 applicants) and the workshop resulted in the creation of two films.
