Artists Couples

The NewMediaFestival2020 selections use the pool of more than 8000 artvideos originating from the diverse festival and project platforms, like CologneOFF, artvideoKOELN or the 5 Memorials for Humanity in order to compose programs under most different selection topics and criteria.
A fascinating aspect is representing the phenomenon of the “artists couples”, and in each case it is question – is there more than just a professional partnership?. Often the professional partners are at the same time love partners. Can this “beyond” experienced in the videos, the kind of topic, the kind of dealing with the theme or the way of representing? In which way do the partners influence and inspire each other?
The selected videos are characterized by a particular intensity and complexity, sometimes only the credits give an idea in which way the partners are primarily involved.
