About BIM

In 2014 the Centre relaunches the Biennale of Moving Images (BIM) in close collaboration with the Fonds d’art contemporain de la Ville de Genève (FMAC), the Fonds Cantonal d’Art Contemporain (FCAC), the HEAD – Geneva, the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) (Tasmania, Australia), Arthub Asia (Shanghai, China), and the R4-Ile Seguin (Paris, France).

Under the artistic direction of Andrea Bellini (Director of the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève), Hans Ulrich Obrist (Curator and co-director of the Serpentine Gallery, London) and Yann Chateigné (Head of the Department of Visual Arts at the HEAD – Geneva), the BIM 2014 presents 22 new works produced and commissioned by the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève. The Biennale of Moving Images was founded by André Iten in 1985, during a workshop with the artists Silvie and Chérif Defraoui. It was initially called the “International Video Week” and was one of the first events of its kind in Europe.

Over a period of 20 years the BIM has brought together the very best in video art, showing works by artists such as Bill Viola, Gary Hill, Steina and Woody Vasulka, Robert Filliou, Chris Marker, Guy Debord, Vito Acconci, William Wegman, Bruce Nauman, Chantal Akerman, Rebecca Horn, Jean-Luc Godard, Andy Warhol, Philippe Garrel, Nam June Paik, Laurie Anderson, Artavazd Pelechian, Harun Farocki, Matt Mullican, Anri Sala and the Straub/Huillet duo. Since 2009, in addition to its existing program, the Centre assumes responsibility for the organization of the Biennale of Moving Images, which had previously been managed by the Centre pour l’Image Contemporaine (Center for the Contemporary Image), from 1985 until 2007.
