VIDEOART & EXPERIMENTAL AUDIO-VISUAL ART CALL
FOR MADATAC & TRANSFERA TV:
CYBORGS AND AUDIOVISUAL ART FOR THE END OF THE TIMES



Spain and International/ It is left open without restrictions a call
to select, by means of a criteria in which will be valued particularly
the quality, the experimentation, the innovation and the risk, the
creations of all those audio-visual artists who wish that their works
are promoted and broadcast through the independent program Transfera
and MADATAC04.
The content of the TV program Transfera is exclusively dedicated to
divulge Video Art and Audio Visual Art in all its modalities (any
processes of image-sound interaction, without exclusion of the
experimental cinema), with the aim to disclose to the great public a
view of the consolidated video artists and offer a platform for all
those emergent video artists with a future projection who contribute
with renewing proposals, avoid conventional visual language and does
not find their place in other mass media spaces.
Due to the difficult challenge that supposes to mantaian a project of
this spread, destined essentially to compensate the well-known
mediatic absence,  the relation with the artists will be based on a
principle of promotion and visibility, a guideline directed to
strengthen the sustainability of the program.
However, all the received material will enter, unless the authors
express the contrary, in the selection for the IV Edition of MADATAC,
the Contemporary Audio-Visual & New Media Arts Festival, that
Transfera organize on December12th, 2012 in Madrid, Spain,
