Dear all,
Magmart | video under volcano VIII edition is start, and will end in  
2013, conventionally considered the fiftieth anniversary of videoart.  
So, this edition is very important for us, and especially for  
videoart. We hope that artists' participation will grow again and  
again, for amount and for quality.
We hope that videoart can become really adult along 2013: its time!
And after the success of VII edition, with over 690 videos, by 455  
artists from 63 nations, we are sure that even you'll be part of this  
exciting edition!
But we have more for you. And this year, we introduce a remarkable  
innovation in our festival: a special section for videomapping! News  
and rules about, soon!
Participate at Magmart festival, now !!!

In the meanwhile, we have launched a parallel project: 100x100=900  
(100 videoartists to tell a century). It is the main way Magmart will  
go to celebrate the 50th anniversary of videoart.
The american videoartist Bill Viola has said that: "The digital era  
will overwhelm us, as it happened with the industrial revolution. And  
I am not talking about technological changes, such as the internet,  
Twitter or in art. The changes will hit all of life: from politics to  
science, from medicine to culture. Will change our way of life. The  
role of artists will be even more relevant. Our vision will  
communicate knowledge and compassion."
The project schedule that 100 videoartists, from all continents, are  
invited to participate; every of them will produce a video artwork  
inspired by one of the 100 years of the previous century. The pairings  
are done randomly. All the videos will form a show that will be taked  
around the world during 2013.
We are still looking for few artists, can be you one of them?
But there are other ways you can be part of project! Go on 100x100=900  
website and discover more...

We are waiting for your participation!
All the best

Enrico Tomaselli
Magmart Festival Art Director
