Put your streaming services on hold, and find a new FOKUS with video art that steers clear of the mainstream!
Once again this year, FOKUS moves beyond the usual framework of the exhibition format, out into the cityscape and into your phone or tablet.
We hope that many will get to see these videos, either through our free FOKUS app, on our homepage, at the venues or at Nikolaj Kunsthal from February to 31st of March 2019.
Finally, Nikolaj Kunsthal would like to extend our sincere gratitude to the Danish Arts Foundation and the Danish Film Institute for their support as well as to the Cinematheque and the 10 venues where the videos may also be seen. See you soon and enjoy your FOKUS 2019!
You will be able to see the selected Open Call videos at Nikolaj Kunsthal and selected venues in Copenhagen.
Once again in 2018, FOKUS is going to lift video art out of the traditional settings in which art is presented to meet its audience at carefully selected city spots – indoors and outdoors – and on your mobile phone or tablet. Shortlisted videos will compete for the FOKUS First Prize of €1000 and two Runners-Up Prizes of €500 each. Read more about FOKUS Open Call here.
On March 1, you are also invited to a screening at the Cinematheque where all 10 nominated titles will be presented. This is also the occasion when the winners of the three main prizes will be revealed. Drop by and experience video art on a very big screen and hear the artists tell about their works. See more on nikolajkunsthal.dk.

The video art works will be considered by a professional panel consisting of 5 personalities such as curators, artist and representatives from the film business. Previous years the jury has amongst others numbered festival director Tine Fischer, CPH:DOX, film director Andreas Johnsen and Annika Berg, as well as artist Lærke Lauta.
