VIDEODOX Award – Its history
Since its foundation in 2006, the international film festival UNDERDOX, specialist for films between the arts, also shows video art from Bavaria.
In the first years, the presentation took place as a large-format projection in the cinema. In 2015, the festival, in cooperation with BBK e.V., decided to present video art in an independent exhibition and founded VIDEODOX as the festival’s only award-winning section. The prize was set up to promote the still young art form and is therefore not a prize for young talent aimed exclusively at young artists.
Since then, the biennial exhibition VIDEODOX presents video art from Bavaria in the spacious historical rooms of the Galerie der Künstler.
