Video Vortex XII proceedings: art, archive, algorithms, activism

By admin, 3 March 2021

Video Vortex, an artistic network concerned with the aesthetics and politics of online video, gathered again in Malta for a two-day conference. We were in particularly focussing on bringing new research, theory and critiques of online video– in addition to questions around its integration with social media – to Malta. These proceedings are an edited collection of assembled and annotated video essays living in two instantiations: an online version – located on the web at, and an offline version – stored on a server inside a VHS case.
