Video Vortex Conference in Amsterdam | 11-12 March 2011

On the 11th and 12th of March 2011 a next conference about Video  
Vortex will be organized in TrouwAmsterdam. Conference themes are:  
Online Video Aesthetics; It’s not a Dead Collection, it’s a Dynamic  
Database; Country Reports; Platforms, Standards and the Trouble with  
Translation; Online Video as a Political Tool; and Online Video Art.

On Thursday the 10th of March, the Institute for Sound and Vision (in  
collaboration with INC and NIMk) organizes two workshops at NIMk.  
These workshops offer participants the opportunity to gather hands-on  
experience with online video. Participants can work in different  
creative workshops and play with a range of online video tools and  
technologies. Facilitated by experts, the topics are: remixe and re- 
use of open video collections and participatory video production. On  
Saturday evening the 12th of March, performances and video projections  
will take place during an evening program.

During the conference the second Video Vortex reader will be launched.  
There will also be a book presentation of Vito Campanelli's Web
