A programme with current video art curated by Gunnel Pettersson, Filmform.
Angelägenheter (Concerns) mirror an interest for social, political and cultural patterns and events. Some intervene, other reflect from a distance. Documentary and staged scenes intermingle. Some of the works have the ambition to reach beyond image and representation and in different ways intervene in the social reality. It is journalism, for the untrained eye. Contemporary video art shapes matters in ways which might be considered strange, or not possible to classify as art, film or documentary. These boundaries have always been interesting to cross, maybe more so in a media society.
