Video Is King –
New Exhibition with FREE Opening Event at the HeK Basel
28th November 2020 until 3rd January 2021
Exhibition on Video at Haus der Elektronischen Künste in Basel
From family vacations clumsily captured on VHS tapes to technicolor-filtered sunsets snap-shared via Instagram reels, video has been transforming the visuals of our everydays like few other media before. With 82% of all consumer data traffic over the Internet expected to be video by 2021, moving visual images are fast becoming the single most prolific medium of our times.
Regionale Project – Swiss, French and German Artists
The new exhibition of Regionale, a cross border project of Swiss, French and German artists, focuses on the artistic use of the trendiest of all art forms presenting a curated selection of videos, films and animations at the House of Electronic Arts (HeK) in Basel.
The collective of young, contemporary artists behind the exhibition “Expanded Video Works” employ 3D technologies, video games, VR, and found footage to create introspective and surreal-looking works. The themes explored via the multimedia artworks exhibited range from the impact of digital technologies on families and social ties to the fragile relationship between documentation and fiction in the post-truth era.

The House of Electronic Arts will celebrate the opening event of the exhibition with offering free admission and guided tours on 28th November 2020.
