CologneOFF 20XX ‐ videoart in a global context
Searching for an ideal form of presenting “art & moving images”

As a dynamic media art event context and nomadic festival project designed, programmed, curated and directed by Agricola de Cologne in the framework of Cologne International Videoart Festival, “CologneOFF 20XX – videoart in a global context” started in 2010, a flexible work in progress, a process incorporating the idea of a festival, not bound to a physical location, but travelling from one venue, country and continent to another presenting a hybrid type of mono-channel videos, which can be presented in the same way via screening, projection and installation
A dual system is forming the supporting frame-work – virtual (online) components (see links) – all videos, info & event updates online – juxtaposed with the physical component in form of networked screenings & exhibitions- Agricola de Cologne’s curatorial opinion juxtaposed with the curatorial opinions of 40 curators (40 countries) demonstrating the multi-facetted diversity of artistic and curatorial approaches – the active presenter juxtaposed with the passively consuming audience to be activated via interventions like lectures, panel discussions, artists talks, round table or workshops, not to forget the different types presentation forms, in total, an interactive context intending to link the audience, artists, curators and institutions by thinking and acting in new terms without any restriction.

CologneOFF XP nomadic does not transport standardized screening programs to the partner venues, but featured programs prepared individually for each venue. So, the festival is travelling, but not the programs selected and curated by Agricola de Cologne. In this way, the screening programs, the individually selected works for different contexts and concepts and the aspect of curating get a new meaning and a particular relevance. In terms of curating as an artistic expression, these programs form the basis for the screenings, projections and installations generating continuously new images through these representations forms. While these images are accessible only to the individual viewer, the curated (created under individually artistic conceptual) programs presented to the audience of individual viewers get the actual relevance as the conceptual condition for generating individual images. Therefore in terms of representing the wider artistic value of CologneOFF as a media art project, these individually curated programs are defined as, so-called “pre-images”. In this way during many years, a remarkable collection of such “pre-images” was rising. Behind each below listed venue is standing at least one “pre-image”, however, very often the respective events were presenting several programs (“pre-images”) – the most extreme case was 2011 the festival event @ Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana in Mexico City, where in total 22 programs (pre-images) were presented, so that the totality and the compositions of all pre-images were forming a new kind of global “pre-image”. The artistic concept has always to take the aspect of time into account, this is good for the individual video included in the program, as well as the respective program itself. While the artist is dealing individually with time in his own creation, these time based images, generated by screening the composition of individual videos, are – like the video und the preception of the moving images – not static, but represent the image of indivdual processes, initiated by the “pre-images” inside of a viewer. While the “pre-images” are a result of a curatorial (artistic) process, the “pre-image” is of an unstable consistance, because its manifestation in form of the listed videos is static, while the manifestation in form of the projection is not only initiating processes, but is representing a process itself. The “pre-image” is representing an intermediate state between thartistic curatorial process and the processes to be initiated by confronting the viewer.
The nomadic festival project can be considered as an artistic structure for initiating processes at most differerent places in most different cultural, economical, social, religious or ethnic conditions.
