MUU Video 2014
is a collection of drawn, stop motion and computer-generated animations. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Finnish animation in 2014, MUU Video 2014 presents a collection of nine animations that range stylistically from traditional puppet animation to computer-generated works. The eight artists represented in the collection are all Finnish or based in Finland. The works are from the 2013–2015 programme of MUU Gallery, and were selected by Timo Soppela, Director of Artist’s Association MUU.


Videoforma – International Video Festival has been organized by the Kuryokhin Center of Contemporary Art with the support the St. Petersburg Committee for Culture since December 2010. The third Videoforma festival presents established artists, musicians and directors experimenting on the boundaries of sound and image. The screenings include works by video art pioneers as well as by young artists working in different genres and media, from video art, short films, documentaries and animation to vj-ing, 3D mapping and other computer technologies. The festival will introduce to the Russian audience several videos that have been acknowledged by the international community. The programme also includes lectures by the founders and curators of renowned European video archives and festivals. The festival programme includes works by Viktor Alimpiev (Russia), Alexandra Dementieva (Belgium), Ho Tzy Nyen (Singapore), Laure Prouvost (Great Britain), and more. The festival curators are Victoria Ilyushkina and Olesya Turkina.

The Kuryokhin Center of Contemporary Art was founded in 2004. The main purpose of the centre is to unite talented representatives of contemporary art who work beyond the boundaries of mainstream pop culture and to provide them with opportunities for collective and individual presentation. The Kuryokhin Center was named after the legendary Sergey Kuryokhin, one of most prominent artists of the late 20th century, a brilliant composer and pianist who wrote film scores, founded a recording company, and served as the head of the Center for Space Research. Kuryokhin was also a publisher, a bibliophile, and the founder of the Popular Mechanics Orchestra. The orchestra with its futuristically resonant name emerged in the 1980s, revolutionizing and completely changing the cultural life of Leningrad (today St. Petersburg). Currently the Kuryokhin Center hosts six international festivals annually: SKIF, Ethno-Mechanica, Electro-Mechanica, Videoforma, Megapolis and Sergey Kuryokhin Award.
