OLD HABITS DIE HARD
50 videos selected by international artist-run spaces and collectives Organized by Sparwasser HQ
50 artist led spaces across the world were asked to choose the best art video they could think of, and get hold of. There was no topic or other issue to relate to when selecting the video, except that it was selected by the space or collective. The video format was Pal and NTSC. The videos are no longer than 30 min. Each space was asked to send a short description of the video for documentation together with a short description of the collective and the activities of the space. The whole exhibition was organised in just over two month through e mail, www and courier services. A number of artists works deal with 'collectives / networks and communication' raising the issues of self organization and self-representation. Some of the artists talk about other and alternative economies / values, which evolve and are established. These artists are involved in researching and mapping the format of their work.
