New Video, New Europe is a survey exhibition of recent video work by more than three dozen artists from 16 Eastern European countries stretching from the Baltic through the Balkans, including Albania, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, and Slovenia. Organized by Hamza Walker, Curator and Director of Education at the Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago, the show includes 43 works reflecting a variety of genres and approaches, ranging from autobiographical and documentary to surreal fantasy and experimental formalism. The works are divided up and presented as five discrete programs focusing on different themes - such as the residual resonances of war, ethnic tensions, and issues of national identity - or common sensibilities, such as a self-deprecating humor that relates to anxieties about joining the European Union.
