March 19 – 31, 2019
Nikolaj Kunsthal, Copenhagen
A jury of professionals from the worlds of visual art and film have selected ten works out of the many entries submitted for the FOKUS open call, representing 20 different countries. These works have been selected strictly from artistic criteria – obviously in terms of form and content, but also based on the unpredictability of the work as a whole. FOKUS video art festival provides the space for a significant niche within the art world, pretty close to the world of film but not one that is necessarily best experienced in a cinema.
The ten nominated works can be seen at Nikolaj Kunsthal and at various institutions within the Copenhagen Cultural District. Christian Lemmerz’s work TRAUM (2018) has been selected for the exhibition, on show March 19 – 31.
