Confirmed: the ikono On Air Festival finally breaks ground!

Posted June 21st, 2013


Here at ikono we are extremely excited to announce that this September will see the first ever art festival to be exclusively broadcasted on TV in more than 30 countries and on live stream globally online in HD 24/7!

Between the 6th and the 29th of September, the ikono On Air Festival will celebrate and share all of ikono’s favorite artists and ikono’s most beautiful video clips with its global audience.

The festival will combine contemporary non-narrative films and other time-based art practices from the last few decades with a retrospective from the ikono collection of video clips focusing on art from antiquity to the present.

With the festival, ikono will present a thorough dialogue between the moving image and the classic idea of an artwork, challenging ideas of social spaces, everyday life and cultural communication.

Bear with us until we can start announcing the participating artists & curators, the festival categories, the broadcasting partners and much more!

Start the ball rolling by sharing this news and please keep checking our blog and social media sites for further updates on the very first ikono On Air Festival.
