VISUALIST "THOSE WHO SEE BEYOND" [DOCUMENTARY]
A FILM BY PEDRO PANTALEÓN & MANU CID
From Madrid to Berlin, New York or San Francisco, “Visualist, Those Who See Beyond” trips through the history of video creation from the perspective of the most relevant international artists. From the depths of the underground to mainstream events and their introduction in museums and exhibitions.
Since the Big Bang, light has given shape to the world and it has been the energy that allows artistic expression throughout history. Visualist is a portrait of artists who use light as prime matter, who tell us how everything started in audiovisual art, how it is evolving and where it is going.
Chemical Brothers or Moderat’s live shows, video installations for Richie Hawtin, OK Go’s videoclips… The geniuses behind these shows are the seed of a next-generation art form, creators of own worlds, pioneers in the shadows who use AV technology as a form of artistic expression and… perhaps elevating art to the next level?
Back in the day, the artistic value of photography or cinema was questioned, but nowadays they are both recognized artistic disciplines. Visualist proposes the AV world as the artistic format of the future, an urban art form born from club culture, which already set foot on more “orthodox” places like museums, which grows exponentially, and probably will reach beyond our imagination.
