The Experimental Video Art Exhibition is an annual presentation of new video art from Thailand and Europe, which started in 2004. The exhibition focuses on artistic video practices to reveal new media’s important position and versatile use in contemporary art that differs from traditional art media such as painting, sculpture, and print making. Video art uses new technology, computer calculation and engineering practices for artistic expression and generates results in close proximity to our increasingly technological living environments.... In Thailand video art and its emphasis on technology has not been widely presented, yet.

The Experimental Video Art Exhibition Thai-¬-European Friendship installment of this video art series intended to show current styles and modes of video practices in Thailand will be featured from nine participating universities such as Bunditpatanasilata Institute in Bangkok, Painting, Sculpture and Graphic Arts Faculty at Silpakorn University, Fine Art Faculty at Chiang Mai University, Fine Art Faculty at Burapa University, Department of Fine Art, Architecture Faculty, at King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang, Faculty of Fine Arts, Bangkok University, Fine Art Faculty at Suan Sunandha Rajabhat University, Faculty of Humanities and Social Science, Dhonburi Rajabhat University. College of Fine Arts Ladkrabang, Bangkok.

The purpose of the annual project is to showcase a diverse international group of students from various universities and artists working in video art each year to stir up new concerns, methods of practice, art theory and discourses of meaning about global influences of new media on social behavior, perception and artistic expression. We invite many artists from Europe who currently live and work in Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Slovenia, England and other countries. Each artist’s style and individual work process contributes to the diversity of the exhibition project providing insights into their cultures, roots and customs, personal interests and issues that tackle concerns about place, time and simulation.

Through the participation of artists from various backgrounds we intend to create a network that enhances understanding of different cultures through artistic practices and opens up an international platform for discussions.

Additionally, we focus on building academic partnerships within Thailand as well as establishing academic exchange programs with foreign universities and institutes that already include the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna (Austria), the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne (Germany), and others.

Our specific goal is to improved fine art education and academic regulations in Thailand. Science technology is nowadays an important area of study in the arts and projects should be made available for students at their academic institutes. The Experimental Video Art, Exhibition Thai-¬-European Friendship is a project that extends knowledge of new media for students and the general public through organized video screenings and receptions at various universities in Bangkok. The cooperation among artists from Thailand and abroad proved to be very successful in the past few years opening up future communication between nations around the world.
