NCCA Yekaterinburg
The NCCA Ural branch was launched in Yekaterinburg in 1999 and became the city’s first institution working in the contemporary art field. In 2005–2011, the branch published ZAART magazine, which became an archive for the Ural art of the 2000s. At the same time, the NCCA professionals formed a vast collection of video art from Ural and Siberia.
Since 2008, the branch is running the Ural Plants: The Industry of Meanings program, focusing on an artistic rethinking of plants and industrial reality in an urban environment. This research resulted in one of major projects in Russia’s art system — the Ural Industrial Biennial of Contemporary Art.
Since 2011, the branch hosts exhibitions, implements educational programs and cooperates with local artistic community through organizing exhibitions, portfolio reviews, workshops and art residences. In 2018, a new project was introduced at the NCCA — the Young Artist’s Lab.
Today, over ten projects of the Ural branch have been nominated for the Innovation Prize.

Kansk (Siberia) XI International Kansk Video Festival 2012


Kansk (Russia) XI International Kansk Video Festival
17-25 August 2012



Wilfried had contacts to Kansk International Video Festival already since many years, at first as an artist. For some reasons which cannot be understood, Wilfried’s submissions to the festival were never successful, so called, there were technical problems. Fact is, after the founder of the festival hired external Russian curators as temporary festival directors, the problems vanished and in 2010 suddenly Wilfried was invited to present the latest CologneOFF Festival Edition in Kansk. – Kansk is a place located in Siberia in the East of Krasnojarsk, counting not even 100 000 inhabitants. But after the collaps of the Communist system, here a kind of local cinema industry developed, a kind of “hollywood” in Siberia, including huge arichives of films produced during the Communist era. After Wilfried had accepted the invitation, the festival team in Kansk worked that the Goethe Institute in Novosibirsk was funding Wilfried’s travel to Siberia, and then some days ago, it was so far, Wilfried started from Düsseldorf to Moscow where he changed the plane to Krasnojarsk, and at the airport a taxi was waiting for Wilfried driving him through the endless forests of the Tundra. This was an incredible ride, because the road where the taxis was riding on was consisting of big deep holes and the taxi driver had to drive slalom – in fact the taxi was longer in the air flying over the road holes than usually driving, and then after many hours, Wilfried was stepping out of the car his back full of pain. The car was standing in front of a typical Communist building – and at the door appeared Nadya – the festival director, welcoming Wilfried after his adventurous ride at the hotel.
OK – thus, this was Siberia! And then it became obvious, this hotel was situated far away out of the actual city, and – it was not easy to go from there anywhere. One needed either to take a taxi, which was less recommended or a bus, which was recommended taking more than half an hour to the city centre, which, if one was stepping out at the final destination was no real centre, because one did not see the city but only some invidual smaller buildings and a big church. So, Kansk was a strange place, so different than any other place where Wilfried had been before. Founded in the 19th century it was one station at the Trans-Siberian-Train and not far from the town dozens of Gulags, prison camps were existing, only to be campared with the Nazi concentration camps, but nowadays hardly any traces are left – the endless expanse of the Tundra is generating quite soon a kind of melancholia.
Wilfried learned soon, what kind of relevance the video festival has for the local population. It is the only event during one year, when foreign guests are comming and the international video program is bringing the world to this middle of nowhere. In this way, the local people are really open minded and hospital.
The festival location is representing the cultural center of Kansk including a huge theater which is used as a cinema, and what kind of surprise, the huge space is crowded with really many film enthusiasts more than one is accustomed at many Western places.. Wilfried is thinking, to be at such a place far away from any civilization is really making sense, because culture is meaning to these people something fundamental, in contrary to the over-saturared Western people, who have in Cologne, for instance, the choice between dozens of different events each day. Here in the Tundra, culture means to be connected with the rest of the world in a very special way and the foreigners attending this even are telling their adventurous stories.
The festival organisation is organising travels around Kansk to the Siberian Tundra, where certain tribes are still living their nomadic life since many centuries. Wilfried is impressed and he wishes that they will also have the chance to live their traditional self-determined life in future.
So, for Wilfried Kansk is a special experience – and this night, 20 August, 2012, Wilfried has his personal presentation in the huge theater. At the end end of the festival, Wilfried will be part of the jury selecting the prize winners, and – being in the jury was at this place – a good experience!
Particularly, when Wilfried will have returned to Cologne, retrospectively seen he is really happy to have had the chance to make such a jump to Siberia, because probably there will be no 2nd chance.

Kansk International Video Festival


Wilfried Agricola de Cologne was part of the international jury. Here is his small report:

“Being honest, when I started my travel to Kansk/Siberia I was not sure what could be expected.
But I was positively surprised by the festival and its organisation at a place which is actually situated somewhere in nowhereland.

But, it is the only festival of that kind, in the incredibly sized Siberia, and the festival was able to invite all artists/directors whose videos were selected. Even if not all invited artists were attending, many were mostly inteernational, but also Russian artists, and more surprise – the big hall of the cultural center of the city was mostly well attended by a very interested, sometimes even enthusiastic audience.
I learned what kind of relevance this festival has for the cultural identity of Siberia, so not only the city council, but also the cultural minstery of the region, press and media and above all the audience are standing behind this festival – and a resume, it really makes sense to support the honest and serious aims of all people involved.
In the West, sometimes people have forgotten what actually the reason should be for organising a festival, in Siberial, at least, it was really a meeting place.
Because I was part of the seven person jury which had to find besides a Grand Prix also some other prize winners, it was necessary that I stayed all the time, but it was a good experience! “

7th Linoleum Animation & Media Art Festival Moscow
@ Solyanka State Art Gallery
10 July – 09 September 2012

Solyanka is right there, where in Moscow vessels running up the blood, in the midst of urban life, 5 minutes from the Kremlin, right on the Ivanovo hill, and standing around, as if not rocked the twentieth century-the destroyer, miraculously survived 1917 churches – almost everything – almost as then. Here, as in few places in Moscow – survived the medieval maze of crooked streets, twisted into complex knots, making the lanes running down the hill. The word “Soup” comes from the times of Ivan the terrible, from his Salt yard.

The house where dwells our Museum, was built in the early XX century architects Sergeev, Sherwood and Herman. They managed to do what was required developers: most closely used in the project intricate shape of the plot, building up building both up and down. The house is a monument of neo-classicism.

Even before the emergence of the art gallery space, where now the Museum lives, it was a place of power. Here, for example, by the incredible tricks managed to get the space as a workshop one of the first Russian artists-performer Herman Vinogradov – although in the present limits of Soup in those days dwelt local housing office.

In its original form State gallery on Solyanka appeared in 1988. In those early years the space was famous as a Playground, showed a lot of naive art and the most prominent Russian primitivist painters of his time. In 2002, the Hodgepodge came a new Director, film historian Boris Pavlov, before heading section of the documentary and animated film in the State Central Museum of cinema, and then worked as chief curator and Deputy Olga Sviblova in the Moscow house of photography.

On occasion of the opening of Now & After International Videoart Festival @ CCI – Center for Creative Industries Moscow, today 17 April 2019, this article would like to make an incredible walk through the major cultural instititutions of Moscow, in order to celebrate videoart, on one hand as a significant artistic medium, and a nearly 10 years lasting collaboration under the guidance of the host Marina Fomenko, director and curator of the videoart festival.
The walk is starting in 2012 @ the Museum of Modern Art Moscow, also 2013 this museum will be the festival venue, while in 2014 the State Gulag museum of Russia’s dark history will represent the festival location, in 2015, there will be two events @ two different venues in April 2015 Schusev State Museum of Architecture, and only some months later @ Moscow City Museum a kind of retrospective presenting also the previous creening programs by CologneOFF as a partner of Now & after Videoart Festival, in 2016 The State Darwin Museum will be the venue. In 2017, for the 1st time CCI Fabrika will be the venue presenting one of the CologneOFF’s 2015 program another time, while 2018, the next venue will be Artplay Design Center, and in 2019 again CCI Fabrika as a place crowded with young people. This is just a virtual walk also for Wilfried, because Wilfried did not visit Moscow so far, and it is very unlikely that he will do in future. Already some time ago, Wilfried decided to travel to no totalitarian country any longer, visiting St.Petersburg in 2011 was representing a nightmare, while the city as such was more than worthwhile to be visited, and Wilfried supposes also Moscow would be an exciting place. But in times of Corona, people are happy if they can travel virtually around the globe without any ideological restriction, and so the guided tour through Moscow’s culture is honouring Marina Fomenko as a good and trustful partner during so many years.

This article offers the unique chance for the viewer to participate in Now & After International Videoart Festival Moscow, and this way, in an historical process by viewing all CologneOFF programs streaming online.

Curatorial statement
While ecology can be defined as the scientific analysis and study of interactions among organisms and their environment, in terms of philosophical questions about the Being as such and the human existence in special, in the given case ecology has to be understood as an artistic study. The human being is the only creature which is able to design its environment creatively resulting truly incredible achievements of civilization. Our current world, however, is suffering from this ability which is a blessing and a curse alike destroying potentially not only the living environment, but also the own human species actively.
The curated selection including artists from different countries and continents is discussing the philosophical questions and physical aspects of this profound endangering.
