Cineclub Canudo, the Cinematic Culture and Electronic Arts Association, is pleased to present the fourth edition of the Avvistamenti video festival, with the support of Regione Puglia, Provincia di Bari and Comune di Bisceglie and in collaboration with UICC (Unione Italiana Circoli del Cinema), Ethical Imaging Italia. The event will take place at Teatro Garibaldi of Bisceglie on December 28th, 29th and 30th, 2006.

This year the complete Peter Campus’ videography: from the 1970s to the recent video works; from 1995 until the present day. Peter Campus is considered a pioneer in the history of video art with a distinguished career that includes closed circuit installations, photography, and computer-based images. Campus mapped the technical and symbolic parameters of the emergent medium as metaphors for the self. After 1976 he focused on photographic and computer-based works. In 1997, after an interruption of almost 20 years, Campus has returned to the moving image with a massive production of new videotapes and video installation.

“In this recent works Peter Campus has found a pictorial language that does not employ words to narrate, but find his way under our skin by using brief, newly created sequence of images and a few carefully chosen sounds”. (W. Herzogenrath)

During the first two days of the festival, we will be showing the new 2006 video, never shown internationally and some video of the recent years in European preview.

On December 29th Peter Campus will be present and will meet Avvistamenti spectators during the “Peter Campus: video ergo sum” meeting. The meeting will take place at 6pm in Teatro Garibaldi. We’re sure the meeting with the American artist will provide young students (from academies and universities) the opportunity to better understand his work and aesthetics. Every year we have had a great response from young artists who have come to take part in our festival and this will be an opportunity for them to receive important impulses for their future art works.

December 30th will be devoted to the “made in” programme, that aims to promote worldwide video artist production, with works never shown before in Italy. After England, Poland and South Chorea, this year our attention has crossed the Adriatic Sea to Croatia video production (Ervin Babic, Tomislav Brajnovic, Tanja Dabo, Marko Ercegovic, Nicole Hewitt, Renata Poljak, Vedran Šamanovic, Sonja Vuk, Vlasta Žanic) in the same programme with Apulia artists. As a result we will present two section called “Made in Puglia” and “Made in Croatia”, to promote the exchange of ideas, cultural background and experience between Croatian and Italian artists. The two sections will be shown the same day.

We’ll have the presence of the Croatian artist Tanja Dabo and the curator Davorka Vucic, that on 30th, 10.30am, will carry out a workshop and later, at 6pm, will talk together with Italian artists Rossella Biscotti, Luca Curci, EGO (Gaetano Accettulli + Vito Livio Squeo), Lucia Leuci, Mario Materia, Carlo Michele Schirinzi, hoping in future cooperation and collaboration.

The Avvistamenti Video Festival is organized by Cineclub Canudo, Daniela Di Niso and Antonio Musci, curated by Antonio Trimani, and it is made possible by to the following artists and curators: Peter Campus, Wulf Herzogenrath, Barbara Nierhoff, Tanja Dabo, Davorka Vucic, Kathleen Graves; and the following institutions: Università di Bari, Accademia di Belle Arti di Bari, Accademia di Belle Arti di Foggia, Kunsthalle Bremen, One Take Film Festival, Kino Klub Zagreb, Unione Italiana Circoli del Cinema.

Peter Campus
Campus is considered as a pioneer in the history of electronic art. In a distinguished career that includes closed circuit installations, photography, and computer-based images, Campus’ work in video is distinctive in its theoretical and formal significance. In an extraordinary series of videotapes produced from 1971 to 1976, Campus mapped the technical and symbolic parameters of the emergent medium as metaphors for the self. This rigorous investigation of the psychology of the self was undertaken as a systematic, phenomenological exploration of video’s essential properties and formal foundations. After the 1976s Campus has focused on photographic and computer-based works. In 1997, after an interruption of almost twenty years, Campus has returned to the moving image with a massive production of new videotapes and video-installation. In these recent works “Peter Campus has found a pictorial language that does not employ words to narrate, but finds its way under our skin by using brief, newly created sequences of images and a few carefully chosen sounds” (W. Herzogenrath).
