Other Visions 2012 curator: Dušan Zahoranský
The competition and curatorial selection Other Visions tries to make the current Czech audio-visual production, which lies on the boundary of visual art, video art and animation, more accessible already for the sixth year. Any classical animation, work with manipulated image, text, section of feature film, record of performance etc. is accepted. Consequently, the work with film and video moving images in their largest scale is expected.
Ten chosen works will be screened and installed in the premises of Art Centre of Palacký University, Olomouc, during the festival. All selected works will be also presented in a supporting catalogue. Every year those ten films and videos depend on curatorial selection of called up theorists and artists of the Czech visual and film background; the curator is changed every year, as well as the jury consisting of three members.
This year’s curator is Dušan Zahoranský, the visual artist and pedagogue. The Main Award and the Audience Award will be announced within the Other Visions Competition.
