MIVA – Muestra Internacional de Videoarte Alterego
Today, Wilfried continues the collaboration with MIVA – a multidisciplinary festival operating in Quito/Ecuador, starting already on 24 August 2012 by presenting a selection from CologneOFF – Art & the City. Besides Peru, Ecuador was the only South Americal country which Wilfried had not visited before, so he was not only curious, but also eager to find possibilities for visiting the country, because such long distance travels require a lot coordinating. Unfortunately, there were always reasons why different travel venues could not be coordinated with each other, and after Wilfried had his horrifying accident in 2017, the physical conditions did not allow another long distance travel.
Already as a child, Wilfried was interested in South American archeology and the history before the Spaniards were conquering Latin America, especially the ancient aboriginal cultures. So by installing contacts to nearly all South American countries he felt connected with that particular spirit, he had experienced during his previous travels.
Today, Wilfried is presenting a selection from CologneOFF X – Total Art- the festival is running until 14 September 2014. Next year in 2015, Wilfried will continue his collaboration with MIVA; but in 2017 it will be fourth and last time, so far.
