“URBAN BODY IN ACTION”
1st Edition of the International Festival of Urban Video Minimum Performances
The International Festival of Urban Minimum Video Performances "Urban Body in Action", is launched in its first edition through an (international) open call in order to collect a set of video works-understanding these in its broadest definition: register of actions, interventions or video performances - that reflect minimal actions carried out in the urban space.
It is short videos (maximum 2 '), recorded with phones, cameras ... where a “minimal performance” that took place in the urban space through performative minimal gestures in everyday life. The concept of "minimal" action is not only for its duration (which may even be greater if an extract of a repetitive action), but also for its ambivalent qualitative significance (minimum-maximum, relevant-irrelevant, noticed-unnoticed, unusual or banal) that involve other ways of relating to citizenship and occasional urban environment (transit spaces, furniture and real estate) in which we live and we share every day like shooting passers-by. These urban minimum actions can be carried out individually or in groups.
