Looking at Recent Moving Image Work at the 52nd Venice Biennale from an international Perspective

However one may feel about the choice of wording: Think with the Senses - Feel with the Mind. Art in the Present Tense, the theme of the 52nd International Venice Biennale is a very apt epithet for contemporary moving image work. It seems to reflect the way in which moving image technology can evoke and encourage an almost synaesthetic relationship between the senses, dispensing with conventional distinctions. But it goes even further, suggesting the way that film and video blurs the divisions between things and ideas, and between each other, as it converges and merges hitherto separate media and transcends physical boundaries and national territories.
