EUROPEAN MEDIA ART FESTIVAL
25. – 29. April 2007
The European Media Art Festival will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2007! Ever since its establishment, the EMAF has been one of the most influential Media Art forums. As an international meeting point for artists, curators, gallery owners and an audience of specialists, the festival has had a great impact on topics and aesthetics of Media Art. Every year the festival offers a current overview of experimental films, installations, performances, digital formats and hybrid forms, ranging from popular subjects and formal experiments to provocative statements.
At the festival an international jury will present the “EMAF Award” for a trend-setting work in Media Art and the “Dialogpreis” of the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the promotion of intercultural exchanges. Also the jury of the German Federal Association of Film Journalists will be awarding the prize for the best German experimental film.
Not only the latest productions will be presented – inventories and perspectives will also be a focal point of the anniversary in 2007. How has digitisation changed artistic production? What effects does this have on distribution and marketing – and also on reception? What are the inter- dependencies between artistic and commercial media production? Have these processes affected aesthetics and contents?
We warmly invite you to discuss these and other questions at the festival, to celebrate our anniversary with us in April 2007 and to discover the fascination of the experimental with us.
Experimental shorts and feature films, music videos, new forms of narration and documentation as well as special programmes.
