What: Open call for the second edition of the Rotative Repository of Latin American Video Art: Single Channel.

A popular Sunday activity, people would go to the cinema to see three or four movies playing throughout the day on the same screen for one ticket. Based on this model, Rotative Repository will showcase two hours of single channel work from approximately 10-15 artists to play on repeat throughout the day, all projected on the same screen, back to back. The program will focus on works that explore the meaning and action of displacement and relocation.
