Irony as subversive intervention

One of the strategies applied in media art is to deal with topics and positions in an ironic, humorous and satirical manner. In so doing, irony does not only serve as background entertainment, but is rather a means of analysis, classification and criticism.


At the festival an international jury will select the “EMAF Award” for a trend-setting work in Media Art, the “arte creative Newcomer Award”, the “EMAF Media Art Award of the Deutsche Filmkritik” and the “Dialog Award” of the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the promotion of intercultural exchange.


Experimental shorts and feature films, music videos, new forms of narration and documentation as well as specials and retrospectives.


From 22 April to 25 May 2015 the festival will present current media installations in the Kunsthalle Dominikanerkirche and other locations in Osnabrueck.


Artistic projects in media-arts, performances, digital music and sound projects, as well as the latest concepts of expanded cinema.


The contact and project exchange forum for new projects,tendencies and concepts from the media universities, academies of art and design colleges of Europe.


Theoretical debates covering the various issues of the festival in talks, workshops, artist presentations and panel discussions.

We warmly invite you to shape and discover the trends of experimental media-arts in Osnabrueck in April 2015.
