Angela Melitopoulos

Angela Melitopoulos, artist in the time-based arts, realizes video-essays, video installations, documentaries and sound pieces since 1985. Within her research projects she curates exhibitions and symposiums. Her videos focus on duration and time-structures, on mnemonic micro-processes in electronic/digital media and documentation. She is collaborating in political networks in Europe and publishes theoretical articles on her artwork and on mnemopolitics. Many projects deal with migration, mobility, collective memory in relation to geography and media representation and archives. In her experimental approach new formats result in multi-screen works or performance based, expanded cinema formats. 

She studied fine arts with Nam June Paik. Her work was awarded and shown in many international festivals, exhibitions and museums (Generali Foundation Vienna, Berlinale, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Antonin Tapies Foundation Barcelona, KW Institute for Contemporary Art Berlin, Manifesta 7, Centre Georges Pompidou Paris, Whitney Museum New York, among others). She is teaching as visiting professor in various art academies and cultural institution in Europe.
