Bandits-Mages, Bourges, FR
Since 1991 Bandits-Mages supports the creation and research in the field of moving image and media arts. The heart of the association is the production and dissemination of film and video as well as sound art and multimedia objects. Its action focuses on three main tasks: artistic production, dissemination of works and raise of awareness. Bandits-Mages offers artists a space of aesthetic freedom and research: a scalable and high-performance multimedia studio, a place of production and exhibition and a residence venue in the city centre.
Bandits-Mages presents audiovisual and multimedia art throughout the year in the form of screenings, lectures, discussions as platforms for developing particular questions, and organises public visual arts training and workshops. Since 1992 Bandits-Mages also organises a biennial international festival.
