David Kořínek: Video in Current Gallery Operation

The lecture is the answer to questions that haunt me or make me happy when I think about what I actually saw in the gallery, why there and not somewhere else and what it meant for me:

1/ Why don't we enjoy watching long videos in galleries?
2/ Why do the short ones look like advertising blocks of influential televisions in rich countries?
3/ Why do we have to walk among videos in a gallery?
4/ Why is it good to see the same video again and again in different galleries?
5/ Why should I pay for something that's for free on YouTube?
The lecture will present the work of contemporary artists Ryan Trecartin, Hito Steyerl, Ed Atkins, Camille Henrot, Halil
Altindere, Cécile B. Evans, Jon Rafman and others.
