For the first time ever, in 2011 transmediale gives away three kinds of awards: the transmediale Award for outstanding works of art, co-presented by CTM, the Vilém Flusser Theory Award (VFTA) for innovative theoretical endeavours, and the newly established Open Web Award for web-based projects that radically support Open Culture and forms of collaboration on the net.
The jury for the transmediale Award 2011 comprised of Matteo Pasquinelli, Marisa Olson, Brandon LaBelle, Defne Ayas and Micz Flor have nominated seven outstanding art works from among an impressive pool of over1000 entries submitted from around the world, covering a broad range of digital and media arts practice. The jury selections reflect visionary and innovative expression, originality in practice and leading contributions to the discourses that address technological, societal and global digital cultures. The nominated works cover new online, performative, time-based, interactive and collaborative digital works reflecting upon the complex and current themes defining today's artistic and cultural landscapes.
All of the nominated works are exhibited at the HKW for transmediale.11 and often accompanied by presentations or workshops given by the artists.
transmediale and CTM congratulate all the nominees, and wish them best of luck for the Awards Ceremony on the 5 February 2011 when the winner of the transmediale Award 2011 will be announced at the HKW!
