In a series featuring about six artworks per year, with a bigger number of published copies than common, Videoart at Midnight Edition is building up a collectable contemporary omnibus of artists’ films and video art installations – a unique anthology of a medium that is gaining more and more importance within contemporary art.
Videoart at Midnight Edition is the outcome of a discussion with leading experts in the field of moving image art and all the artists that have been invited for the Videoart at Midnight screening series at the Babylon cinema in Berlin. Each selected artist choses a significant work of his/her oeuvre or produces a new one exclusively for Videoart at Midnight Edition. The work is solely available in this edition.
Videoart at Midnight Edition gives an ever-increasing insight into the current artists’ film and video art production of Berlin’s international scene. The edition is publishing artworks of renowned artists as well as new and promising discoveries.
Videoart at Midnight Edition is the result of an intense reflection on the art market convention of limitation vs. the artist’s and public’s interest of visibility and presence in a broader range of collections. Hence, Videoart at Midnight Edition simultaneously addresses the wish for a copyright and quality control and the need of doing justice to an endless reproducible medium.
