CYNETart_08 :: Call for entries for the CYNETart award 2008On March 22, 2008 is deadline for submission. We like to ask you to send all information in time.
CYNETart_08Festival period: 30th October until 9th November 2008, Festspielhaus Hellerau
Awards ceremony: 30th October 2008, Festspielhaus HellerauThe festival will present projects which stand out because of their integrated tie-in of art, science and media technology. The art processes are based on modern computer technology and last but not least a work resulting from media operations. They are essentially seeking a cross-link to scientific and artistic forms of art.
TMA Hellerau hosts this international competition of CYNETart, inviting artists and art groups to present their projects every two years. They can apply with projects that fully utilise digital technologies in their conceptual, creative and performing processes, thereby opening up opportunities for digital performance and their relationship to factors such as time, space, physical presence and social encounters. An international jury with representatives from well-established media culture institutions and experienced scientists with a background in media art history will decide about the winner of the CYNETart-award and the sponsorship award. It will also decide on the award of the artist-in-residence-scholarship funded by the ministry of culture. Apart from the awards ceremony and presentation of CYNETart-award- winning projects the Dresden House of Arts will exhibit the entries of the CYNETart-contest 2008 and the festival theatre Hellerau will stage topical performances and performance installations of the international scene. Well-known and popular activities of the festival include the integration of projects from the Dresden Innovations Fund for Art and Media Technology, the nationwide multi- media contest MB21 as well as on-stage acting at further physical and virtual locations.
