<<the videobeat idea, in this case refers to various analytical approaches and theories of history and development of video arts.  videobeat equally refers to the future and to the past.  therefore, the video subject matter will be approached from its very beginnings, when it appeared as a technological discovery - the image signal and the use in military purposes, and then it will be analyzed through a wider sociological, political and artistic prism. the videobeat explores the transformation of the video from the instrument for accurate transmission of certain events and situations all the way to the almost revolutionary possibilities in the scope of the most diverse expressions and experiments. video becomes the instrument for expression of emotions, imaginary realities, and new perceptions. freed from rational and technological, it steps away from the language of the feature film; the emphasis is put on freedom of expression. during the last decades of the past century, picturesque and poetical characteristic became the essence of the video>

<with regards to the videobeat subject matter, the intention is to define the status of video arts today, especially in relation to other forms of visual expression and media. one of the aims defined in this way is to answer frequent questions in this field: is video art being transformed into a new form and how can we be sure that the transformation isn't going in the opposite direction? what kind of media is this about, which are the new ways? is video disappearing in the age of pure digital forms? the most interesting question is whether the new media and the whole digital visual production are nothing but logical steps in the progress of video art aesthetics>>
