Meetings

Selected impressions from the Video and Performance Festival MEETINGS 2019

…we saw only a few video installations and one sound installation…and we had only a few hours to use after work, on a moist and grey wednesday…

…we were however very impressed by the quality of the works, the installations and last but not least – how cool it was to experience the locations!

In the following, pictures without captions are independent impressions by me, shot at the location without any formal connection to the installation itself. Pictures with captions are shot by me to depict in one way or the other the installations. // Note that in the (brilliant and free) catalogue from the exhibition we find not only good descriptions of each work but also an interesting and well written story related to each of the locations, authored by Malte Tellerup (DK).

…as said in the beginning, we saw only some installations out of the 26 installations and/or events of the festival. We will do better next time I hope. Three days are probably needed to get around to all works. Speaking of getting around: finding the locations was no problem, due to exemplary directions in the catalogue and the discrete but effective yellow road signs at the locations. Quality!
