This exhibition showcases the work of artists in the audiovisual platform/archive at La Vidéothèque, an online resource centre which has been compiling and diffusing the creations of video artists from across the globe since 2010. Fully committed with visual creation, La Vidéothèque also organises projections and publishes online and text editions. Likewise, it forms part of a network of exchange and collaboration with other artistic structures run on the principle of self-management and free access to content.

Universo vídeo. La Vidéothèque presents nine works offering a cross-section of happening tendencies in audiovisual creation today. Like an electrical circuit or system, the singularities of each individual work feed off, affect and transform the following one, creating a narrative where links with other forms and different motives are forged or broken.

In this way, the works weave a mesh addressing the state of the question. From documentaries and games that engage with reality to the ghosts of the past that haunt the present, though experiments with forms, textures and colours, until arriving at more specific genres like filmed diary, reportage, musical video, urban symphonies or other technical interventions like collage, found film and appropriationism.

The exhibition also has a competitive component. During FICX (Gijón Film Festival) one of the participants in the exhibition will be awarded a prize which consists of a two-week production residency at LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial. The work produced during the residency will then be presented at FICX 2015.
