Forgiving Time

Forgiving time introduces videos by contemporary Greek artists, in which ordinary, everyday objects are used symbolically to explore concepts such as memory, existence, displacement, alienation, inner battles and personal perceptions of time, loss, life and death.

Curated by Gioula Papadopoulou – co-director and curator of Video Art Miden.

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 Kalamata, Greece. It has been presenting an annual video art festival for a decade. Since 2015, Miden changed its form to a more flexible and broadened event programming, setting as basic aims to stimulate the creation of original video art, to help spread it and develop relevant research.

Miden provides an alternative meeting point for emerging and established artists and a communication hub between artists, organizations, festivals and art spaces around the world. ||
