OPEN CALL / Video Art + Video Documentation FREE entry Paadmaan Video Event is an international periodical video event born in Tehran, Iran, seeking to explore video documentations of recent contemporary works of art (e.g. installation, performance, new media) and Video Art in general. Organized by Paadmaan Projects, the Video Event considers ‘video’ as its central theme. The event emphasizes on video in the context of the art documentation, while addressing the challenges embedded within the so-called ‘documentation’ of contemporary art projects. Priority is given to works of art that portray these kinds of challenges, from the lens of the artist with attention to the artistic decisions made during the process of the documentation. The archival project is done in collaboration with itinerant venues to create an alternative platform for holding a collective discourse to amplify already-existing interdisciplinary art content, and to discuss reviewing documentation of art projects in terms of representation [in addition to the video screenings].
