VideoChannel is the curatorial platform for audio-visual art, operating between 2004 and 2014 in total 10 years, before the project became on completed museum department of The New Museum of Networked Art.

vch_log_01_150VideoChannel came alive when Agricola de Cologne started his global networking project [R][R][F]200X–>XP in 2004, as a project environment focussed on new forms of video within the thematical context of “memory & identity”.

In 2005, VideoChannel started the first screening of selections from the comprehensive video collection in collaboration with media art & video festivals around the globe. A land mark was the presentation in the context of the Biennale for New Media and Video – Santiago de Chile 2015 – taking place at Museum of Contemporary Art Santiago de Chile – and became this way, an individual platform for art & moving images. Numerous presentations followed in many parts on the globe.

As a curatorial platform, Videochannel is aimed to experimenting in curating audio-visual media – generating a unique collection of artvideos on the topics “memory & identity”. A specific feature is representing the dual system – operating and exchanging between virtual (online) and physical space.

VideoChannel became basis and starting point of divers activities in audio-visual art, for instance, for CologneOFF – Cologne International Videoart Festivalhttp://coff.newmediafest.org (founded in 2005), as well as CTF – Collective Trauma Film Collectionshttp://ctf.engad.org

The very comprhensive museum department of VideoChannel is directed and curated by Wilfried Agricola de Cologne
