The Loop Barcelona Festival will hold its 12th consecutive annual festival this month at venues across the city. An eclectic city-wide art and video project, the festival will run for 10 days with exhibitions, screenings, panels and workshops at major cinemas, museums, art centres, galleries and other public spaces. Barcelona Loop is an organisation that focuses on promoting, circulating and educating the public about video art, a form that emerged in the Sixties and has since experienced growing popularity among collectors and artists. The central theme of this year’s festival will be collecting video art and the role of audio in the art form. The exhibitions and participants will take a close look at the reception of this form of art, how it’s affected by changing technology, how using audio changes the audience’s experience and other related topics.
