Visions in the Nunnery
Visions in the Nunnery has become an unmissable event for artists working with the moving image. This year, it includes recent work by established and emerging artists worldwide as well as special screenings, performances and talks. The variety of conceptual approaches and aesthetic choices shows a medium alive with enthusiasm and questions.
