Videotage, founded in 1986, started out as an artist collective, and has developed itself into a network of media art and culture for cross-disciplinary cultural productions. To mark this year’s thirtieth year anniversary, Videotage announces the new initiative, Acentered: Reterritorised Network of European and Chinese Moving Image. will explore new sustainable ways of sharing knowledge, ideas and resources, in addition to increased participation in the arts through long-term international exchanges.

During Art Basel’s upcoming show in Hong Kong, the Art Basel Crowdfunding Lab will present Videotage. The Lab will feature video art works from the Videotage Media Art Collection, and also works from our partners, which include Casa Asia (Barcelona & Madrid), Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art/University of Salford Art Collection (Manchester), The Chinese University of Hong Kong/Department of Fine Arts, City University of Hong Kong/School of Creative Media, Connecting Spaces (Hong Kong-Zurich)/Zurich University of the Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University/Academy of Visual Arts, The Hong Kong Institute of Education/Department of Cultural and Creative Arts, Momentum (Berlin), and videoclub (London).
