THE FESTIVAL OF VIDEOART IN BISHKEK

From 28 to 31 August, a cosy exhibition hall of the Artists’ Union of Kyrgyzstan hosted a small but representative and interesting festival of videoart from four Central Asian countries. The festival REFORMAT 13 gathered a group of curators, artists and film-makers who to some extent could be regarded as representatives of avant-garde as opposed to mainstream art, but the films shown at the festival demonstrated different degrees of non-conformism.
