Video in Progress 4 a joint project involving the Kolektiva Institute and Photon Gallery in which we present Slovenian and international video art has grown into a festival. In this fourth edition we will present three exhibitions and a cinema screening. This year is theme feelings of distress covers a wide range of emotions such as sadness, depression, fear and grief, as well as pain and suffering in general. In our lives we face pain and suffering of varying intensity every day. Suffering has been a longstanding theme in the iconology of art, and the romantic notion of the suffering artist is still not forgotten. Pain and suffering are no longer common motifs in contemporary art; however, when they do occur, artists tend to deal with them in various ways, and mostly from their own experience of life. The festival offers insight into approaches to the subject of pain by contemporary young artists.
