Festival in Indonesia seeks videoartists
Held in Jakarta (Indonesia) since 2003, OK. Video - Jakarta International Video Festival is a biennial event idealized by Ruangrupa, a local artists' initiative dedicated to audio and video projects concerning social and cultural phenomena in Indonesia and abroad.
Open to submissions until July 10th, will be accepted works that dialogue with the topic "deception", which goes along with the Indonesian word “muslihat” and has the same meaning as “effort”, “tricks”, “tactics”, and “strategy”. This is the representation of the contemporary tendency of (re)appropriating popular technology, displayed in chinese electronics adapted to local needs, videogames modified by players, the "scratch" video culture, etc.
