International Contemporary Art Festival SESC_Videobrasil

Founded in 1983 in Sao Paulo, Brazil
Organizer: Associação Cultural Videobrasil

The first edition of Videobrasil was held in 1983, bringing together a trailblazing generation of national artists and documentary and video makers. In the years that ensued, the event evolved in two major directions. The competitive exhibition turned to mapping electronic art from the geopolitical south of the globe; and the programmes accompanied the fast-paced evolution of electronic media, which became part of contemporary production and were divided into different manifestations, such as installation, live performance, interactive work, and intervention.

The 2013 edition of the Contemporary Art Festival celebrates an important moment for the biennial show. The main Brazilian event dedicated to the artistic production from the geopolitical South (Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, Middle East, Eastern Europe, South and Southeast Asia and Oceania) goes thirty. It is the only Brazilian international festival for contemporary art, with exhibitions, public activities, awards. As in previous editions, a major exhibition establishes a dialogue with the Southern circuit: besides the Southern Panoramas competitive show, this year the highlight is the three decades of experimentation and risk assumed by Videobrasil since 1983, brought together in the exhibition 30 Years.
