AdAC is the Archive of Contemporary Art at the University of Genoa (School of Humanities), The collection, in constant expansion, includes texts, manuscripts, photographic material and videos in analogical and digital form, and includes titles by artists such as Pipilotti Rist, Nam June Paik, Bill Viola and Cesare Viel.
To enrich and update this collection through testimonies of research currently underway in the field of video art and beyond, the AdAC indexes a permanent CALL_FOR_VIDEOS, for all Italian and international artists active in the sector.
The videos received, after being viewed by the scientific committee that will meet periodically in order to make a critical selection and to prepare an adequate catalog, will be added to the archive and divided according to the different types:
– Works of video art
– Video for installations
– Video performance documentation or other artistic actions
– Experimental cinema corto (the latter must not exceed the maximum duration of 15 ‘)
The video material will be used for teaching and research purposes (consultation will be made available to students and researchers) and / or for exhibitions or thematic video reviews at the University or in different locations, after authorization by the author, and will not be never used for commercial use or for-profit purposes.
