About Cologne OFF V

Founded in 2006 by VideoChannel in the framework of [NewArtMedia ProjectNetwork]:||cologne,
the experimental platform for art and new media,
CologneOFF is realising in 2009 its 5th festival edition under the topic of “Taboo”.

According to (wikipedia) “A taboo is a strong social prohibition or ban against words, objects, actions, or discussions considered undesirable or offensive to a group, culture, society, or community. Breaking a taboo, considered objectionable, abhorrent or unacceptable by the majority in a community by in engaging in activities or not adhering to local customs usually leads to severe penalties applied by rule of law. Other common reactions by persons breaking taboos result in embarrassment, shame and are commonly  considered by others as a sign of rudeness.”
In our Western socities “the taboo” changed its meaning profoundly and does actually not exist anymore as a dogma and an instrument of social and moral ruling, but it is replaced by a kind of individual “taboo” practiced by groups of mind-likes.  In this way, people can be confronted with different types of “taboos” depending on the needs of certain social groups.  The selected videos refer to this invidualization and take the artistic consequences in most different ways, whereby the digital technology  offers many solutions to the artists and the viewer. It is this variety, which makes the festival program so exciting and vivid. It  is up to the viewer to search and find his personal definition(s).

CologneOFF V consists of 5 program sections including
–>  50 shortfilms and videos in 3 international programs
–> a feature of 14 German art films/videos and
–> a selection of 14  One Minute Films made by the guest curator Ali Zaidi (London)
and contributed by MOTIROTI London

For more info about the festival and its films, please download the festival catalogue as PDF

CologneOFF V can be accessed via the festival site on http://coff.newmediafest.org
or directly via – http://coff05.newmediafest.org/


On occasion of  the CologneOFF V launch,
VideoChannel is releasing online “Feature II” of German Video Art
—> http://videochannel.newmediafest.org/blog/?page_id=709
Including viideos by the German artists/directors participating in CologneOFF V.

After Feature I, presenting the outstanding Cologne based video artist Johanna Reich,
Feature II is offering the diversity of digital video of 15 artist/directors.
Feature III, the next following focus on German video art is planned to be released in
January 2010.
