Open Call: International Guerrilla Video Festival Dublin 2009
DUBLIN.- The International Guerrilla Video Festival Dublin 2009 will be held 19-20 February in 3 unique areas of the city: Parnell Street, Rathmines and Talbot Street. Navigating the areas over the course of two days, the IGVFest will project works relating to the social conditions of the site on building facades, monuments and temporary structures. Artists who are active in the areas and artists elsewhere addressing similar situations are invited to apply with single channel videos. Artists can work directly on site where the festival will be shown or in areas of other cities with with similar conditions. Themes to be addressed on the sites include: Parnell Street (immigration, demographic shifts, cultural hybrids); Rathmines (urban planning, gentrification, periphery); Talbot Street (maintaining of traditional culture, potemkin village).

The International Guerrilla Video Festival (IGVFest) is a mobile festival integrating video art with the urban and social environment. Removing the technologically complex medium of video out of the institutional situation, it is re-positioned as a approachable medium in the public domain. The works included engage and reflect the unique architectural, historical, and interpersonal context of each site in the festival.

The ubiquitous billboards and advertising with the same campaigns attempt to transform the urban setting into a homogeneous landscape in every city around the globe. The festival aims to re-occupy that space infusing it with a reflexive locality showing work created in concert with the community and focusing on issues related to the site. A self-contained, transportable GPU (Guerrilla Projector Unit) facilitates the incursions into the public realm, projecting the videos onto the facades of buildings, monuments, and temporary structures. Transforming public space into a fertile ground for experimentation toward new possibilities in the relationship between art and society.

Submissions should include:
