24 artists / 24 videos / 24 countries - 45 min.

Curator : Véronique Sapin



The videos included in this video-composition were created especially for FemLink-Art who presents the video collage VITAL.

Interpretations of this theme are featured by 24 women video artists representing 24 countries from around the world. The artists reflected on what is vital for them. The result contains a wide range of responses from the private to the political, the meditative to the immediate, the formal to the informal.
