The Vasulka Effect

The life and work of pioneers of video art Steina and Woody Vasulka. Their history with video dates back to the late 60 ́s when they lived and worked in New York. Some have called them the grandparents of the “YouTube generation”, or “grandparents of video art”, seem forgotten by the art world. With humor and serenity, they are struggling with finances and how to leave their media archives to the world. We start to understand the major impact video had on art and society from the 60 ́s until now, a period referred to as the second renaissance, where media art contributed to the decentralization of art and corporate media. With only a handful of allies we see them being rediscovered by art collectors and museums. The life and work of pioneers of video art Steina and Woody Vasulka.

Future Gate is the largest festival of science fiction films and culture in the Eastern Europe. The festival has created a strong audience base not only among film lovers but also among fans of science and future technologies. The festival is regularly visited by thousands of people.

Every year the festival brings rare guests from abroad as well as interesting personalities from the world of film and science. Its aim is not only to entertain the audience, but also to point our some important topics and give audience an original experience of meeting with the film makers and educate them in lectures on modern technologies, science and literature. The film program presents the latest titles, accompanied by legends of the genre, documents and serial marathons.

The 7th annual of the festival is entitled “Cyber revolution” and is devoted to the question of freedom of the modern man. The theme is inspired by current situation in some countries where citizens are restricted by state and technologies are misused to control people. We want also to point our some other important topics: fake news, cyber attacks, restrictions of media, cyber bullying, etc. The theme will resonate in selected films, the accompanying program, lectures and discussions with experts.The 7th annual of the festival is entitled “Cyber revolution” and is devoted to the question of freedom of the modern man.
