This year, OK. Video aims bigger and changes its name from Jakarta International Video Festival to Indonesia Media Arts Festival. The idea is for the OK. Video to expand its artistic scope and present much broader works. The choice of Orde Baru (New Order) as the theme paves the way for OK. Video in the coming years to have a wider artistic achievement by presenting not only temporal works (video, film, and performance) and installations, single channel or multi-channel, but also sound art, digital imaging, internet-based art, and other works based on media technology. By pushing the boundaries further, OK. Video creates the opportunity to explore new artistic ideas and address new critical issues in new media arts.
The Festival will comprise a series of programmes; exhibition, screening, multimedia performance, workshops, discussion, open lab, and symposium. The festival opening will take place on 14 June from 16:00 to 22:00 with special performances by bequiet, Brisik, AstoneA, Cut & Rescue featuring Dharma Wanita Choir, and visual mapping by Ricky “babay” Janitra and Klub Karya Bulu Tangkis.
