'Choosing Another Strategy': Machine Raum / 13 October 2011 Vejle/
IntroductionMachine-RAUM 2011
*Choosing another Strategy*

On the 13. October Machine-RAUM will open its second international festival
of video art and digital culture in Vejle. The intension behind the theme
for 2011, *Choosing another Strategy*, is motivated by a wish for openness
and new thinking, both as regards experimentation and taking on
responsibility for a globalised future*.*

This theme expresses a wish for dialogue and democracy between artists and
art works across social, ethnic, political and cultural strategies. The
festival encompasses works that, in their different ways, demonstrate
alternative ways to deal with everyday life and alternative ways to deal in
the world. The special thing about art is that it is not bound by the
obligations of journalism or documentation when it comes to contemporary
issues, and therefore it is able to come up with new strategies. The works
show this in different ways, in everything from conceptual videos, short
fictive gimmicks to performative actions documented on video.

With the vision of seeking out alternative strategies Machine-RAUM presents
a number of artists and art art curators from parts of the world that are
currently undergoing enormous changes, and therefore have a need for
dialogue and communication extending beyond the political. Thus the festival
feels the pulse of the way in which art and artists act some of the world’s
crisis areas. There will also be a showing of video works by European
artists and art students from Denmark and Germany. In these countries the
political situation is very different, but the relation between art and
politics is still an issue.

It is the intention of Machine-RAUM to function as a platform and venue for
artists working with video and digital culture. During the festival the
exhibiting artists will present their works and through artist talks open up
the possibility of discussion and the sharing of experiences. Students from
art academies in Denmark and Germany will present their works and offer
their proposals regarding a new generation’s way of working with digital

Machine-RAUM is a non-profit organisation.
