|[Nettime-nl] tm.01 - Artistic Software Prize - call for entries|
Please distribute! Apologies for cross postings! transmediale.01 - international media art festival berlin DIY [ do it yourself ! ] 4 - 11 February 2001 CALL FOR ENTRIES The transmediale.01 will award three prizes - each worth DM 10.000 - in the categories: Interactive, Video and Artistic Software. DEADLINE: 31 October 2000 (postmark). ARTISTIC SOFTWARE For the first time (ever?), the transmediale is organising an art prize competition in the field of software. We are interested in supporting the artistic work done by hybrid artist-programmers whose production have a distinct artistic quality yet which have not been sufficiently acknowledged so far. At the same time, we hope to stimulate the discussion about the aesthetic potentials of programming (not only the 'but can it be art?' question, but also that of 'does it offer a new and creative perspective of the culture of technology?', and 'does it both enable creative production, and represent an art work in itself?'). These questions will also be probed during a panel discussion at the festival (probably on Thursday, 8 Feb 01). For the time being, the definition that we use for the as yet barely defined field of ARTISTIC SOFTWARE is that it incorporates projects in which self-written algorithmic computer software (stand alone programmes or script-based applications) is not merely a functional tool, but is itself an artistic creation and a form of aesthetic expression. GENERAL The transmediale.01 invites the submission of artistic projects developed in or after 1998. The closing date for entries is 31 October 2000 (postmark). It is urgently requested that entries should arrive prior to that date, though. Please download the entry form (pdf) from our website http://www.transmediale.de or request it as an attachment from email@example.com. The transmediale - international media art festival berlin - will be held from 4 to 11 February 2001 in the Podewil - Center for Contemporary Arts - in Berlin and at other venues. The transmediale is a platform for artistic and critical reflection on the role of digital technologies in present-day society. The festival provides a forum for communication between artists, those working in the media and a wide range of experts and offers a stimulating environment for the presentation of major new digital culture projects.
