Kaleidoscope presents KALEIDOSCOPE Videoclub, a new online platform dedicated to artist videos and experimental film, stemming from a reflection upon modes of distribution and reception of moving image in the Internet era. Hosting curated programs conceived either as thematic explorations or monographic surveys, the website gives access to rarely seen works while reinventing the concept of the film club as a digital space for experiencing, sharing and discussing art. Contents are uploaded on a regular basis, disseminated through social media, and occasionally accompanied by screening events—pursuing our idea that the magazine is an open platform that can exist in print, online, and live. 

The kick-off program of KALEIDOSCOPE Videoclub is #VOICEOVER, an extension to the current issue’s survey on the deployment of off-camera commentary as a conceptual device in the moving image works of a new generation of artists.Featured artists include Ed Atkins, Laure Prouvost, Pilvi Takala, Hito Steyerl, Helen Marten, Camille Henrot, Ian Cheng, John Smith, Mark Leckey, and Oliver Laric.

Two #VOICEOVER screenings curated by Shama Khanna with works by Ed Atkins, Steve Reinke, Laure Prouvost, Richard Sides, Andrew Norman Wilson and Pilvi Takala will be held at Palais de Tokyo, Paris, on March 10, accompanied by a public conversation with featured artist Richard Sides; and at Kaleidoscope’s newly opened project space, Milan, on March 14, accompanied by a public conversation with featured artist Andrew Norman Wilson.

March 10, 7–9pm 
#VOICEOVER at Palais de Tokyo
13 Avenue du Président Wilson, Paris

March 14, 6–9pm 
via Macedonio Melloni 33, Milan

To follow in mid-March, the second program of KALEIDOSCOPE Videoclub will be #FRANCESCOVEZZOLI, a retrospective selection of the artist’s extraordinary and lesser-known video works from the late nineties to the present, which dangerously tangle with thorny issues like religion, sex, politics and the codes of the art system.
