Athens Video Art Festival | Living Athens
The 9th Athens Video Art Festival organized another successful project under the title “Living Athens”. With the aim to celebrate artistic expression, it transformed the city into a cultural center of artistic expression. In the course of three days (7, 8, 9 June), it hosted more than 250 artists, who were selected among 1.500 submissions. In addition, it attracted more than 18.000 visitors, contributing to the aesthetic revitalization and the suburban improvement of the city, with exhibitions, screenings, workshops and live acts both in public and private spaces, indoors and outdoors.
At the crossroads between art and media, AVAF 2013 offered new perspectives on creativity and interdisciplinary thinking between art and technology. The programme included video art screenings, exhibitions, open-air video art & animation screenings, educational workshops and academic presentations, music acts, DJ sets as well as large-scale murals. Meanwhile, it hosted extensive tributes to some of the most important and renowned festivals of the world, such as One dot Zero, Ars Electronica, Oodaq, View Fest and Streaming Festival.
