The upcoming platform “Casting Screens” is an initiative by Klasse Digitale Grafik of HFBK Hamburg and serves as a digital exhibition space of artistic screencasts – the form of video documentation for our digital lives. This platform investigates multiple questions:
- How do artists process and explore digital culture through screen recordings?
- What is the role and relevance of screencasts as an artistic medium for the depiction of digital culture?
- In which ways is this relatively young medium being used artistically?
The platform merges the digital exhibition of works of art and theoretical text contributions, which deal with our field of research and the issues mentioned above. For the digital exhibition we are now calling for your screencast-related artistic video piece that explores screen culture and takes place in the digital realm.
