Videotage is a non-profit interdisciplinary artists collective that focuses on the development of video and new media art in Hong Kong. One of Asia’s first media art organizations, Videotage was founded in 1986 and is funded by the government to cultivate art development and nurture artists in this swiftly evolving field of art.
Since 2004, Videotage’s unique residency programme FUSE has brought together individuals and groups from the fields of art, engineering and science, with the aim to explore the synergy between divergent modes of knowledge production. Videotage encourages the realization of ideas through FUSE, which provides active production support and offers space for presentation and sharing. FUSE is also a platform for overseas artists to work with local artists, in order to facilitate exchange and develop projects in a local context.
Upon discussion, yet residents are encouraged to participate in public events including workshops, demonstrations of research-in-progress, and online releases.
Residents can have a work desk in their office and make use of the gallery space, the floor plan of which can be found HERE. Residents will have access to the space during office hours and other times upon request.
They don't provide accommodation but the Videotage staff will assist as much as possible with visa arrangement and locating cheaper accommodation in Hong Kong.
