“The Oodaaq Festival has existed since 2011. Every year, it offers an artistic journey through the city of Rennes. It brings together exhibitions, video art screenings, performances, installations in the public space, conferences and round tables around nomadic and poetic images.

Through its programming, L’Œil d’Oodaaq questions the place of the image in today’s society and the way in which artists take up contemporary problems and issues of society. L’Œil d’Oodaaq is interested in all the stages of existence of the image, from its construction to its reception and circulation, as well as its recent mutations in the digital age. The association has coined the expression “nomadic and poetic image”, reflecting the shifting, multiple and reflexive nature of the images it wishes to highlight.

The Oodaaq Festival aims to be a space for meetings and cross-fertilisation around these reflections on images and their media. For the 2023 edition, the festival will be mainly devoted to video art with a particular interest in works that question contemporary struggles (ecofeminism, feminism(s), social and ecological struggles…). At the heart of its programming, videos will be presented in the context of programme screenings containing several works, exhibitions, autonomous installations, showcases and salons.”
