Deadline: December 20, 2017, 23:59 MSK (GMT+03:00).   


The eighth edition of the Now&After International Video Art Festival will be held at the ARTPLAY Design Center from 7 to 16 February 2018.

Reality is an intuitively understood component of our life. It is a philosophical category, a scientific constant, and something that everyone can define in his own way. Reality refers to everything that arises in time and then disappears, and usually its existence does not need any proof.
We suggest artists to go in search of an autonomous reality, the one that is not controlled from the outside and develops according to its own laws, independent and self-sufficient, self-governing and detached.

Where can it be found? Maybe it is…

  • Our inner world, untouchable and closed?
  • An art developing according to its own laws?
  • A system of scientific knowledge of the world?
  • A phantom area of illusions and dreams?
  • A digital world, tempting us with virtual reality?
  • A memory universe, hidden from strangers?
  • An independent habitat of the spirit?
  • Self-centered social groups and self-developing subcultures?
  • All-absorbing Internet?
  • Self-oriented world of politics?
  • Family, large and small?
  • Biological and ecological systems?

We are waiting for your new works exploring the theme of autonomous reality!
