“media flow. videoventure on electronic music pt.3” - exhibition
Videos by Antonin de Bemels, Thomas Schunke, Cie mulleras, Lior Lev, Ali M. Demirel, Nikola Lutz/Kasumi, Douglas Parsons

The exhibition series “media flow. videoventure on electronic music” presented by the media art gallery fluctuating images in Stuttgart is dedicated to visual music as a phenomenon of contemporary artistic production (for information on “media flow. part I and II” see www.fluctuating-images.de under 'archive'). The third part of the exhibition series arises from the contest “Dancing the Screen” and deals with the relations between video/film, electronic music and dance. Here, the term “dance”, however, doesn’t only refer to dancing persons, but also to any kind of objects in motion. Like in the early experimental films where forms and colours started to dance by means of the postproduction such as cutting, editing and montage. This extended dance term is also valid for the context of “Dancing the Screen” – as a frame for different kinds of cinematic dance to electronic music.
