Video Art Archive / VAA
ArtBasis initiated the ongoing project of Video Art Archive in 2015. The lack and inaccessibility of information on video works created in Armenian caused us to initiate an effort to create an archive of video art from Armenian artists.
Screenings and Conversations
Video Art Archive’s program “Screenings and Conversations” aims to question in the context of contemporary art how the moving image produces ways of thinking and to foster the creation of the critical discourse on moving image. The aim of the program is to readdress the content to which the artists working in Armenia in recent 25 years have referred in their art practices.
