Looking at the Big Sky


Students from four German art academies were invited to enter recent, single-channel videos for the competition "Looking at the Big Sky". Fourteen video works that respond to the thematic postulation with an astonishing variety of motifs and practices, were ultimately selected. The spectrum ranges from fictional narratives and stagings to individual assertions and performances, from found-footage montages to pseudo documentaries. Starting April of 2014, the selected works will be presented in the video exhibition "Looking at the Big Sky" by the Goethe-Institut in Beijing, Nanjing, Chongqing and Chengdu. It aims to introduce the contemporary production of video art and the current education situation in the field of media art at German universities.

"The sight of a big sky is closely associated with freedom and openness. The faraway horizon is synonymous with the vastness of thought; the high blue sky of day and the starry nocturnal firmament are codes for the sublime. 'Looking at the Big Sky' was chosen as the title of a contemporary video art programme that was associated with the hope that ideas and illusions would know no boundaries, that the sky would be the limit in all directions. At the same time, it sounded like an appeal to the participating artists to venture a perhaps naïve, but unerring look at longings, utopias and great aspirations, and to think about the existing concepts of authenticity and beauty beyond the present." - Renate Buschmann, Leonhard Emmerling
