Mind the Steps is a rich programme of time-based art works produced in Australia, characterised by a variety of genres and approaches to video art. The selection features experimental film and video works, animations and music-based art. It is compiled to represent the socio- political and economic factors that have influenced the Australian video art scene during the last decade. The represented artists vary in their socio-cultural background and status, as well as in their political and artistic orientation.
Mind the Steps raises awareness of art's potential to give rise to socio-cultural and political progress. The program’s title also reflects the strong sense of uncertainty regarding the status of video art that is still evident in both Australia and globally.
