With its 20 square meters used as a video projection room and multimedia project space, since 2010 it has been the reference point for video art in the cultural panorama of Milan thanks to important close collaborations with successful international video art festivals, academic institutional spaces and curatorial collaborations. Every month the programming of [.BOX] aims to offer a privileged look at the panorama of Italian and international video art, as well as to create a place of open dialogue and sharing, connecting the local reality of Milan with the international sphere.
Video Art Miden is an independent organization for the exploration and promotion of video art. Founded by an independent group of Greek artists in 2005, it has been one of the earliest specialized video-art festivals in Greece, setting as basic aims to stimulate the creation of original video art, to help spread it and develop relevant research.
Through collaborations and exchanges with major international festivals and organizations, it has been recognized as one of the most successful and interesting video art platforms internationally and as an important cultural exchange point for Greek and international video art. Miden screening programs have traveled in many cities of Greece and all over the world, and they are hosted by significant festivals, museums and institutions globally.
