e-flux video rental (EVR) is a project by Anton Vidokle and Julieta Aranda, comprising a free video rental, a public screening room, and a film and video archive that is constantly growing. This collection of over 700 works of film and video art has been assembled in collaboration with near 100 international artists, curators and critics. Orignally presented in New York, at 53 Ludlow Street in 2004, EVR has traveled to Amsterdam, Berlin, Frankfurt, Seoul, Istanbul, Canary Islands, Austin, Budapest, Boston, Antwerp, and Miami.

In the 1960s and 70s, artists were drawn to working with video in part because it was cheap to use and easily reproduced and distributed. But video art has become increasingly assimilated to the precious-object economy of the art world. EVR is an exploration on the current processes of circulation and distribution of video art, and is structured to function like a regular video store, except that it operates for free. VHS tapes can be watched in the space, or, once a viewer fills out a membership form and contract, they can be checked out and taken home.

Every time EVR is installed in a new city, local artists, curators and writers are invited to serve as selectors, choosing artists whose work is added to the collection. In addition, a special program of screenings of works from the EVR collection is part of the project. In Paris, the program will continue with the participation from Christine Macel, Michel Ritter, Maria-Ines Rodriguez, Fabrice Stroun and Nicolas Trembley.

The opening evening’s program will include a screening of a selection of EVR staff picks and a conversation with Anton Vidokle and Julieta Aranda. Additionally, a special program of silent or nearly silent works will be screened continuously on the window of the library of Swiss Cultural Center at 38, rue des Francs-Bourgeios throughout the duration of the project in Paris.
Special screenings will take place on April 14th 2007, April 26th 2007, June 21st 2007, and July 12th 2007. All screenings are at 6 pm (free admission).
