Phantas.ma/polis

The video art programme of the 2021 Asian Art Biennial

Presented by Pad.ma

Phantas.ma/polis, is the new location for the video art programme of the biennial, “Phantasmapolis: Looking Back to the Future”. Using the time-based annotation, timeline views and edit features of Pad.ma, Phantas.ma/polis showcases the participating artists’ videos along with extended commentaries by the curator, artists and critics. Over the duration of the biennial, it will evolve to bring the artworks in conversation with each other through both formal and interpretative recombinations of the featured works. The video art programme is curated by Anushka Rajendran

Pad.ma Archive Launch

Thursday, February 28, 2008.

PAD.MA is an online archive of video material, primarily footage and not finished films, that has been densely text-annotated. The entire collection is searchable and viewable online, and is free to download for non-commercial use.
We see PADMA as a way of opening up a set of images, intentions and effects present in video footage -- resources that conventions of video-making, editing and viewing have over time tended to suppress, or make unavailable.
