Irony in Media Art - Subversive Interventions
This year’s EMAF addresses precisely such ironic interventions, as well as major and minor rebellions in Media Art. Transcending the boundaries between film, sculpture, action and performance, artists playfully develop their social criticism, keeping a close watch on socio-economic conditions. Taking elements from day-to-day media, they comment on the distribution of power and prosperity in society, creating collages bristling with irony. Intelligent wit and a none-too-serious tackling of political issues – the artists’ passion for discovery and taste for open play create unexpected solutions.
At the festival an international jury presented the ›EMAF Award‹ for a trend-setting work in Media Art, the ›Arte Creative Newcomer Award‹ and the ›Dialogpreis‹ of the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the promotion of intercultural exchange. Furthermore, a jury presented the ›EMAF Medienkunst-Preis‹ of the German film critics.
