Viewfinder at OSMOSIS Audiovisual Media Festival 2017 from videoclub on Vimeo.

Viewfinder is a collection of artists’ film and video, exhibiting at OSMOSIS Audiovisual Media Festival in Taipei, which includes an exhibition, two screenings and a performance.

Viewfinder brings together a collection of diverse film and video artists working with diverse subjects, including gender, sexuality, class and race. All the artists ask and challenge us to face our social conditioning and what society tries to convince us to believe what is normal. This includes challenging the media’s role in showing us how to react and obey, what to consume and what to look like. And to contest our acceptance of the media and social conditioning’s roles in shaping us; examining how the public impacts upon the personal.
