PLAY/I – Video- & Performance-Festival // June 2013
The Video- und Performance-Festival PLAY has been developed in 2013 by CAT Cologne and Galerie ampersand. As a biennial festival for video and performance it is organized every second year with altering focus. The title “Play” refers to multi meanings, such as the play button on video players on one hand or to a theater play on the other, herewith genealogically linking these two elements of video and performance. Further to this, “play” can also be read as a challenge and as a cross-genre artistic imperative.
