The ursula blickle videolounge makes videos on contemporary art and artists constantly available to students, art historians and the interested public. It is a site of communication and a living archive, at the same time affording the opportunity of research and insight into the medium of video.
The pilot project ‘video of the month’ presents a monthly changing video programme of monographic works and thematically conceived video compilations – for example, by Isaac Julien, Lida Abdul.
As an extension of the offering, the information programme ‘… about’ shows videos on general subjects of contemporary art, interviews with artists and historical surveys.
The ursula blickle video archive, which is expected to open at the end of 2006, will collect all works produced for the ursula blickle videolounge by students at the University of Applied Arts and the Ursula Blickle Foundation and also those by artists chosen by a external jury.
