Videonale Bonn and Video Art Network (VAN) Lagos join forces to present the project Videonale in Lagos: Changing City – Shifting Spaces. The project is an initiative of KfW Stiftung which wishes to contribute to the ongoing development of new media artistic practice in Nigeria by supporting local up-and-coming talents in establishing international contacts. It is realised in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Nigeria and the Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA), Lagos. 

When looking at today’s globalised, digital realities the language of the moving image has become a universal tool to comment and reflect on the ever-shifting spaces of everyday life. With the topic Changing City – Shifting Spaces, Videonale in Lagos explores the dynamics of urban space in a video art workshop for artists based in Nigeria, led by the internationally acclaimed Anglo-Ethiopian video artist Theo Eshetu in collaboration with the Nigerian artist/curator Jude Anogwih (VAN Lagos), as well as an exhibition featuring Nigerian and international artists curated by Jude Anogwih (VAN Lagos) and Tasja Langenbach & Jennifer Gassmann (Videonale Bonn). 

With works by Ima Abasi-Okon, Aderemi Adegbite, Jude Anogwih, Victor Ehikhamenor, Theo Eshetu, Christoph Faulhaber, Heidrun Holzfeind, Uche-Okpa Iroha, Zhenchen Liu, Melanie Manchot, Emeka Ogboh, Wura-Natasha Ogunji, Otolith Group, Nicolas Provost, Adejoke Tugbiyele, Emeka Udemba, Zsolt Vasarhelyi, Jan Verbeek, Tobias Yves Zintel.
