VIDEODOX Award 2023

Munich, Gallery of the Artists, October 10–22, 2023

Call for Entry – Deadline: July 31, 2023
5th VIDEODOX awards for video art from Bavaria

From October 10 to 22, 2023, the Gallery of the Artists in Munich’s Maximilianstraße will once again be dedicated to video art. In cooperation with the Berufsverband Bildender Künstlerinnen München und Oberbayern e.V. and with the support of the Cultural Department of Munich, Department of Fine Arts, VIDEODOX presents video art from Bavaria for the fifth time.
The works shown in the exhibition are nominated for the VIDEODOX Award of € 1000. The prize sponsor is Peider Defilla (B.O.A. VideoFilmkunst).
The VIDEODOX Förderpreis serves to promote video art and is not a prize for young artists.

Who can submit?

VIDEODOX calls upon all visual artists from Bavaria to submit.
It is not necessary that you currently live in Bavaria, but you should have had your center of work or life in Bavaria in the past (e.g. childhood, education, longer stay). Works that were merely created in Bavaria (production or filming location) can also be submitted.
Visual artists, collectives as well as galleries, universities and other institutions can apply for the exhibition.

What can be submitted?

Video art and films conceived for the art space and video art installations from the last three years of production (2020-2023).
Single and multi-channel works, installations and – out of competition – video performances are possible. Works may have already been shown at any venue or online.

What will be selected?

The selection focuses on works that deal with the moving image in an artistic way. Filmed documentations of performances must be realized in a way that shows a cinematic design. Up to 15 works will be selected.
The exhibition concept, including the distribution of the works among the gallery spaces, will be designed by the VIDEODOX curatorship. We will try to take into account the wishes of the artists*. However, please keep in mind that VIDEODOX is a group exhibition. Individual wishes may therefore have to take a back seat to the general interest.

What does VIDEODOX offer the artists?

All works nominated for the VIDEODOX Förderpreis 2023 will receive a page in the festival catalog with illustration (B/W), short description of the work and vita of the artists* (print & online).
The BBK Muc & Obb will pay the participating artists an honorarium of 150 €. For the week of 05-11.10.2023 the participating artists* will also receive a festival pass for the international UNDERDOX film program with free admission to all events.
In addition: 1000 € prize money for a work selected by an independent jury of experts.

Gallery opening hours: Wed, Fri-Sun 11am-6pm, Thu 1pm-8pm.
Action weekend on 14 and 15 October 2023 with guided tours and events.

We look forward to receiving numerous submissions!
