We conceived Videonale X as an extension of the online video archive of the Videonale. Videonale X complements the works with short video formats produced in collaboration with the artists. They offer entertaining insights into the everyday life of the artists and the artistic, technical and conceptual development process of the individual works.
Videonale X thus becomes a digitally experienceable place for the presentation and mediation of video art. The online platform is constantly expanding and makes it possible for users to discover new and surprising aspects of the video art works of the Videonale.
Videonale X was developed in close collaboration with the Büro für Brauchbarkeit. From the beginning, the approach was "mobile first". The goal was to create a spatial environment that invites users to move through the collection of video artworks and video clips using familiar elements such as swiping and scrolling.
Accessibility is important to us. We have therefore taken care to provide information in two languages throughout (German and English), to optimize readability through font size and contrast, and to make navigation as simple and intuitive as possible
