2016 Edition



The 6th edition of Video Sound Art Festival, this year in autumn, has a reticular structure across the city of Milan, in five different locations: the Institut Français in Milan, the “Leonardo da Vinci” National Museum of Science and Technology, Villa Simonetta, the Franco Parenti Theatre and the Museum of Design 1880 -1980.
“TA EROTIKA Hidden doors” is the title of this year’s festival: the collapse of reason in front of the erotic object, “Ta erotika”; whilst “Hidden Doors”, the secondary title, identifies the perturbing and frightening element which comes to the surface but which should have stayed secret.
Art thus becomes the privileged route of access to the erotic event. Seven international artists investigate the theme, mixing different languages: video, sculpture, installation and performance.
Under the supervision of the artistic direction and the coordination of the staff of  Video Sound Art, alongside the curator Laura Lamonea, four young curators have been selected who will develop site specific projects with the artists of the festival.
Lastly, in dialogue with the artistic exhibitions, and in the spirit of a real multidisciplinary exchange, this year again the venues of the VSA festival will be hosting live performances and, for the first time, a programme of lectures by teachers of philosophy and theoreticians of the art world on topical questions and themes the scientific committee of the festival have drawn attention to.

Canto il Corpo Elettrico is a video made by three students of the National School of Cinema – Vincenzo Campisi, Francesco Quadri and Stefano Scarano – as a tribute to the VI edition of the Video Sound Art Festival – TA EROTIKA, hidden doors from 20/10/2016 to 6/11/2016 in Milan.
