"The Avant Garde Doesn't Give Up" - Asger Jorn
'Increase your necessity so that you may increase your perception.' 
--13th century Persian Sufi mystic Rumi, quoted by Bill Viola

A Light at the End of the Tunnel is an epic video art trilogy about the 
human condition, including seminal works by 30 international emerging 
artists chosen based on an open call from over 200 submissions.

The concept of life, death and rebirth has followed humanity through the 
ages as the self and the collective whole passes through time, creating 
a relative chain of events that could be called the history of universal 
human experience. Its through all of these varying histories, and a 
perpetual creative avant garde that continue to seek a move vivid 
understanding of the interconnectedness of life. Our great quest to 
solve the questions of our age could be exemplified by one of humankinds 
greatest achievements at CERN Labs, Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, the 
worlds largest machine. As the scientists at CERN continue to probe the 
most fundamental questions of life and the origins of the universe, we 
seek artists that are asking similar big questions in their creative 
practice and use their creativity to reveal the world in new and 
unexpected ways.

Why are we here? What does it all mean? How is it all relative to art in 
the 21st century?

The entire video program will be premiering online at Babelgum to 
coinside with the opening of Scope Basel 2010.
