Act Out – Performative video by nordic women artists

24-29 november 2008, Evora, Portugal.

The event Act Out: Performative Video by Nordic Women Artists is a project from Centre of Art History and Artistic Investigation (CHAIA) of the University of Évora (UE). The CHAIA’s researchers responsible for the project are Teresa Furtado. The project collaborators are the curator and artist Anna Linder from Filmform.
Filmform is an institution dedicated to the promotion, distribution and preservation of experimental film and video in Sweden. The Nordic video art anthology Hit the North, edited and curated by Anna Linder, was one of the inspiration sources for this project. 

Act Out brings together some of the most significant Nordic visual artists, theorists, academics and curators working in the art field of performative video at the present time. It aims to highlight and illuminate the important contributions from Nordic women artists to video art. The cooperation amongst participants from the implicated countries will result in a key contribution for the knowledge of women’s video art, a versatile and politically charged territory that, since its inception, has made a quick transition from the margins to the mainstream of contemporary art practice.

of the University of Évora (UE) and Filmform, Sweden.
