This year International Video Art Festival Now&After reviews the intermediate results of its first seven years and takes place without open call.
“Flashback’17” is a look both into the past and the future with the pause in the present. In 2017, we’d like to remember the best works and presenting their retrospective, as well as to show the new projects by the participants of the Festival previous editions. After all, a flashback is a deviation from the routine for a look back. This year our audience will see video works of 47 Russian and foreign artists.
At CCI Fabrika Olivier Hall we will present the namesake exhibition “Flashback’17”. It comprises new works of artists already participated in the Now&After Festival, including the previous editions’ winners.

Curated by Alessandra Arno
Today with the digitalization age we share a sense of heritage and commonality with many human beings we have never met. Identity and collective memory’s ideas flows in a mixed common feelings … and what’s happens if the collective memory goes deeper in meanings levels?
It opens up a subliminal scenario where the unconscious explores the deeper meaning of common feelings.
This video selection wants to investigate on in-visible field, on what remains settled into our un-conscious, showing shadow and our shadows, as the mental mapping of places and the mapping of ourselves. Collective meanings, collective memories, collective shades. Curated by Alessandra Arnò
