People who have saved this event:


HIVideo is a global exhibition of art films taking place simultaneously on World AIDS Day across 3 continents.


HIVideo is the moving image strand of Balaclava.Q. In a first of it’s kind experiment, on 1st December 2016 Balaclava.Q screened 6 video artworks that looked at HIV/AIDS -- on both aesthetic and political levels. Each venue facilitators managed the event, sourced a venue, and generated a small audience. As a first-of-its-kind experiment, the 2016 event acted as a test in strengthening connections between queer artists and audiences -- on a global stage.

HIVideo seeks to promote contemporary dialogue(s) on World AIDS Day via video art from both a local and global perspective. HIVideo complements current discourse and the de- stigmatization / -criminalization movement by creating dialogue about HIV/AIDS via art -- and the attendant aesthetics and politics.
