Shooting for the 10th SCREEN Festival began a few days ago. A video art and motion image festival that every spring turns Barcelona into an essential most-visit spot on the international art scene.

This annual meeting will be on until 2 June and will be expanding its programmed activities and the days it’s on, all for its 10th edition. The festival offers 17 days where you can get up close to audiovisual arts and the latest developments in the field.

In total, over 200 organisations from Barcelona (including galleries, museums, civic centres and other venues) will be involved. You will be able to enjoy more than 1,000 works of video art from 519 artists from 40 countries. All that in over 137 venues around the city, all increasingly more committed to the festival.

One of these spaces is the Francisco Godia Foundation. The Foundation opened the SCREEN Festival with an exhibition which payed tribute to French collectors Isabelle and Jean Conrad Lemaître. The exhibition is called The Eyes of the Soul, and it includes a selection of 14 pieces from the Lemaître Collection, the most important private video art collection in Europe.

The Eyes of the Soul, which can be seen until 17 June, familiarises us with various techniques, realities and perspectives used in the field of video art through 14 works by international video artists such as Tacita Dean, Christian Marclay, Melik Ohanian, Mathias Muller, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Walid Raad, Atlas Group, De Rijke&De Rooij, Frank Hesse, John Menick, Julien Crepieux, Julika Rudelius, Elisa Pone, Melvin Moti, Ryan Gander, Klara Liden, Cecile Hartmann and Beatrice Gibson.

Do not miss the chance to visit this exhibition or any of the other activities offered by the SCREEN Festival. If you want to fill the next few days in your calendar with the in events, this is your chance!
