Welcome to the international video art screening:
GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE
February 7th at 7pm.

A proverb tells us that "the grass is always greener on the other side", reminding us that distant locations always appear greater than they are when seen from afar. But where is this other side in the 21th century? When traveling physically, one often cannot escape the feeling that places are becoming more similar, more commodified, more corporate-ruled. The omnipresent digital medium video travels via internet around the globe and stimulates international dialogue across borders like no other visual medium at the moment. A new generation of video artists speaks up:

GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE presents a selection of international video artists whose work reflects the issues of this globalized generation. GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE does not present videos on a specific theme, but shows a collage image of the subconscious of our present. Personal and global issues clash as the individual struggles with society. Often humoristic or absurdist approaches are used to come to terms with not-so-funny topics.

The programme lasts around one hour. For more information: http:// www.clemenswilhelm.com/ index.html
