“mon amie – l’image” is this year’s title of vkunst frankfurt. It is in its nature (in the nature of the case) that art is primarily a visual experience for the viewer. With this in mind, the curators of vkunstfrankfurt, Christoph von Löw and Andreas Greulich, let themselves be guided in their concept of the sensuous-pictorial aspect of video art. What meaning may the image have for the video artist? Is it just an end in itself and appearances? Is the aesthetic deliberately negated, and the improvised, i.e. the non-professional, emphasized? What does the examination of the picture of our time place emphasis on? It is the task of vkunst frankfurt 2014 (May 09 – 10, 2014) to investigate this.
