This summer, Videokaffe is going on a road trip through the USA. Along their route from NY- LA -NY, they will be stopping at art centers to give artist talks and screen a series of Finnish video art they call “Northern lights”
Videokaffe curated a one-and-a-half-hour-long video program of contemporary Finnish video art with works from; Heini Aho, Leena Kela, Essi Kausalainen, Jari Kallio & Antti Jussila aka MSL+ Jaakko Pallasvuo, Annika Dahlsten & Markku Laakso.
Northern Lights shows a series of short films and performances from which some tell a story with a clear message, and others are more surreal with an intuitive approach. Through this Videokaffe hopes to share with communities throughout the USA a glimpse of ART from a faraway land.
Videokaffe is a collaborative network of 10 artist members in various locations between North America and Europe. Videokaffe explores the intersection of handcraft and technology through public art sculpture, exhibitions, residencies, and internet-based network platforms.
