The FLUX auteur video festival presents works by authors working in the field of creative video: video art, video installations, creative documentaries, etc. In this 18th edition the central authors of Flux are Begoña Egurbide, Gonzalo Marcuzzi and Alessandro Olla, authors with very different backgrounds, working in the fields of art, video creation, video installation, documentary, video performance and audiovisual experimentation. As usual, there will be monographic screenings, colloquiums with the authors and the premiere of their Self-Portraits, which are unpublished works expressly created for the festival.
About the 2023 edition of Flux Festival
The "Self-Portraits" section commissions each central author to create an original work on the theme of self-portraiture. These pieces are premiered at the opening session with the presence of the artists, and with the previous screening of videoperformances that this year have been made by Alfredo Costa Monteiro + Luis Macias, Denys Blacker and The Julandrons.
The "Influx" section explores the relationship between video and other artistic disciplines, combining scenic and electronic literature in the opening act. "Metamemory" addresses the brain's ability to remember the location of information in two collective screening sessions.
A special session, "Lis Costa in memoriam," pays tribute to Lis Costa, co-director of the Flux festival. Also of note is "Self-Portraits 2005-2023," with a looped exhibition of all the works by the 58 central authors since the festival's inception.
The "Catalog" compiles information on the event and presents three articles on the authors. In addition, the "Flux Club" amplifies the festival with regular sessions and colloquia, seeking to reflect the vitality of creative video in the city and act as a platform for dissemination. The sessions took place from April to November at the CC Convent de Sant Agustí.
