CAMMOVIE 2010

On the 17th of April at 6.30pm CAM opens up to video art. Casoria museum is already renown for its attention to visual language and turns now into a multimedia container, a platform over which almost all worldwide video art will pass by. CAMMOVIE is the name of the yearly event/container hosting four sessions: GLANCES, CENSURED, MAGMART, VIDEO LOOP. CAMMOVIE first edition (17 April/30 May 2010) curated by Antonio Manfredi will begin focusing on Iran, looking at Persian video art production (GLANCES session). The visual metaphors, in Iranian glances, turn into a vehicle of messages of protest against the oppressive power of its government and hint at deep reflexions on Iranian society: the women subordinate condition, the economy games with its surrounding nations, the experienced war, the theories connected to the Twin Towers. The flow of images spaces from a documentary to a fine oneiric and estrangement language through 22 videos, some of which previously participated to important western events (like Documenta 11), meanwhile other ones have been produced by dissident artists forced to flee to Europe. Along with the videos there will be an installation dedicated to Neda Aqa-Soltan, one of the victims of the fights in Teheran against the Iranian government, which images have been displayed throughout the world thus becoming the symbol of the Persian Green Wave. Ironically framing the event are the astute satirical sketches by Simona Bassano di Tufillo revealing the difficulties of women wearing Burqua. A performance by Rokhshad Nourdeh, Iranian artist living in Paris will take place, too. During the morning of April the 17th the artist will walk through the streets of Naples leaving brochures with her words on them, then bringing on the top of the Vesuvius a coloured flag, symbol of unity. Rokhshad Nourdeh walk means bringing to another place the flow of people crowding Iran streets during the past months. The performance will continue during the night (April the 17th at 7.30pm) at CAM during the opening of CAMMOVIE. The cultural event will also touch another session of the platform, CENSURED, with the projection of the movies by Jafar Panahi which have been prohibited in Iran. The Iranian director has been arrested on the First of March 2010 for his activity in opposition to the Iran regime, due to his project of a movie on the contests. A wink to the censure in our country will not be missing, like those programs which disappeared from TV and then appeared on the net (Raiperunanotte). The two more sessions are a further research by Casoria museum, a door open to the art production on video. The VIDEO LOOP session presents a selection of videos coming from some of the most important International festival of video art: Optica Festival_Spain, Streaming Video Festival_Holland, Video Play Festival_Argentina, Videoholica Festival_Bulgaria, NamaTRE.BaProject_Bosnia Herzegovina, VideoChannel_Germany and AllArtNow New Media Art Festival_Syria in cooperation with Visualcontainer_Italy. Also, the MAGMART session which once again confirms its presence at CAM, partner of the renown international festival at its 5th edition. 30 videos winners of the competition will be presented and become part of the permanent collection of CAM.
