Background of VideoVortex

VideoVortex is a network of video makers, geeks, activists, artists and
researchers that are concerned with the politics and aesthetics of
online video. The initiative was established in 2007 by the Institute of
Network Cultures in Amsterdam (NL). Video technology has radically
altered the way in which we produce, consume and circulate images,
influencing the aesthetics and possibilities of moving image cultures,
as well as yielding a rich body of scholarship across various disciplines.

Given its ease of access and use, video has historically been aligned
with media activism and collaborative work. Now, however, with video's
prevalence across social media and the web, its dominance of the
internet of things, the role of the camera in both the maintinence and
breaking down of networks, in addition to the increasing capacity of
digital video to simulate that which has not occured – we require novel
theories and research. That is to say that rapidly changing
technological formats underscore the urgent need to engage with
practices of archiving and curation, modes of collaboration and
political mobilisation, as well as fresh comprehensions of the
subject-spectator, actors and networks constituted by contemporary video
and digital cultures.
