The Viral City

In August 2020, we invited video artists from Canada and Germany to submit their ideas on the topic "The City in Times of the Virus". From the numerous submissions, our jury of experts has selected eight works from Canada and Germany that tackle this topic in a critical, humorous, experimental, and creative way. Each of which will be projected for two weeks, between October 2020 and March 2021, after dark onto screens placed in the store-front windows of the Goethe-Institut Montreal on Boulevard St. Laurent.  You will find all information on this page dedicated to the work.
