dear friends,

in order to kick off, i am attaching the text of the call for
proposals that we wrote for the new format of the award competition
of transmediale. it received mostly positive feedback when we did a
trial round, and we look forward to a more in-depth discussion of the
issues involved, over the coming weeks here on the crumb list.

with this new format, we try to open up a space, and we do not yet
know where the jury and selection process is going to lead us. what
is interesting, however, is to see whether it is necessary to
(re)define the boundaries of what constitutes media arts, whether
segmentations within the relevant practices make sense, and how to
negotiate between the natural bastardisation of practices, and
curatorial and PR constrictions.

greetings,
-a




:: transmediale.05 Award
:: Call for Entries

transmediale, international media art festival berlin, invites submissions
for its Award Competition. The competition highlights outstanding
contemporary artistic positions in digital media art. The international
jury will award one main prize of EUR 4.000, and two second prizes of EUR
2.000 each.

It seems impossible to define either the 'core' or the 'borders' of what
constitutes electronic or digital media art. However, the main concern of
transmediale is the vector field in which artistic practices and new
technologies intersect, and where they articulate their social and cultural
meanings. As a festival for media art and digital culture, transmediale
presents advanced positions in the artistic reflection about the
socio-cultural impact of new technologies. It seeks out artistic practices
that not only respond to scientific developments, but that try to shape the
way in which we think about and experience these technologies. transmediale
understands media technologies as cultural techniques which need to be
embraced in order to be able to understand, critique, and shape our
contemporary society.

There are many ways for artists to explore the relation between art and
technology. What is important for transmediale, though, is that the
artistic practices do not only make use of technologies, but that they also
imply a reflection about the aesthetic, cultural and social dimensions of
such technological developments. What the festival and its competition try
to convey is an understanding of media art as a sounding board and catalyst
for a critical and creative expansion of the potential of human agency
through new
technologies.

While during the last years, the transmediale competition had three
separate categories (Image, Interaction, Software), we are this year
responding to various discussions by abolishing the separation into these
categories. This move forms part of a general debate about the definitions
and limits of 'electronic', 'digital', or 'media' art, and we hope that
opening up the terrain of the competition will help to re-evaluate the
connection between art and media technologies.

We invite the submission of works and projects that respond to this
challenge. We remain interested in works that expand our understanding of
interactivity, of digital image aesthetics, of narrative and, in
particular, the cultural significance of software and computer programming
as cultural techniques. However, we are also curious to see the submission
of works outside of these areas, works that encourage us to reconsider the
traditional boundaries defining artistic practice, and works which can make
a strong argument for the crucial role that new technologies should play in
our perception and projection of a contemporary global culture.
