The Concept

MOVIMENTA is a public haven dedicated to the moving image. For all those who build their artistic, critical and technical endeavors around images in motion. Aimed at bridging between the technicians, artists, professionals, thinkers and their potential audiences. Pledged to encompass every audiovisual manifestation of contemporary art and modern technology. Designed to produce public programs with the purpose of shaping situations around dialogue and creation. The Festival Biennal MOVIMENTA will open in October 2017.



In what way does the proliferation of screens influence our relationship with the moving image? How does this manifest in the art field, from a product perspective and in the realm of technology? Isn’t it time to take a moment and explore the possibility of associating screen attributes with content types?

MOVIMENTA is organizing a discussion to delve deeper into these questions; by inviting different artists to showcase works echoing these notions; and reuniting the concerned stakeholders to converse amongst themselves:
entrepreneurs, artists, curators, engineers, scientists, product designers, art critics, architects, sociologists, urban planners, set designers, graphic designers, web designers…

The evolution of our relationship to art in a societal context results in novel situations. By example, Cinema influences narrative structures, inducing new forms of programming. Through a deep understanding of the changes that have already taken place in the artistic and technological fields, we are able to depict the upcoming change.

Welcome to the world of the moving image

by Patrice Maniglier

Art is not a domain of particular things; it is a particular manner of doing things. Almost anything can be done artistically. This is why contemporary artists have invested the world. Art is not a separate reality or some sort of heaven, the top floor of culture’s paradise; it is a way of twisting Earth’s reality, the introduction of a wandering difference, the free mobilisation of new powers.

The Close-up Shot

Within the different shot sizes, the close-up shot has a special status.
