Japan Media Arts Festival in Vienna MQ

The Japan Media Arts Festival chooses every year another country to show their currently awarded and nominated pieces in an exhibition abroad.
This years the exhibition takes place in Vienna. It shows very well that the Japanese art definition differs from the European approach quite a lot, the border between art and design is floating as you can see by the selection of pieces in the exhibition.

Atsushi Wakimoto, the curator of the Japan Media Arts Festival walks us trough the viennese exhibition of the Festival which is running until 20th of September.

Coded Cultures – Exploring Creative Emergences

 Wenn die Maus schreit

Es gibt viele Möglichkeiten, eine Computermaus zu zerstören. Zehn davon hat das japanische Künstlerduo exonemo in der aus Videos und einem Computerprogramm bestehenden Installation “DanmatsuMouse” gesammelt. Einmal saust ein Vorschlaghammer auf das Plastikgadget, ein anderes Mal fräst sich die Klinge eines Küchenmessers durch das Zeigegerät.

Ein Computerprogramm sorgt dafür, dass die reale Maus auf dem Desktop die “Todeserfahrung” ihres gefilmten Pendants nachvollziehen kann und gleichsam final zuckt. Zu sehen ist “DanmatsuMouse” bei der Ausstellung des Coded-Cultures-Festivals, das derzeit im Wiener MuseumsQuartier stattfindet und japanische und österreichische Positionen in der Medienkunst einander gegenüberstellt.

Zum Auftakt der “Futurezone Galerie” hat Matthias Tarasiewicz vom Coded-Cultures-Kuratorenteam Ella Esque vom Wiener Medienkunstblog durch die Ausstellung geführt. Die beiden unterhalten sich unter anderem über Martin Pichlmairs Arbeit “Bagatelle Concrete”, die einen Flipper zur Soundmaschine ummodelt, und über Yuko Mohris Installation “The Execution of Mary”, die elektronische Geräte zweckentfremdet.

Coded Cultures endet am Sonntag. Die Festivalausstellung ist noch bis zum 7. Juni im freiraum des Wiener MuseumsQuartiers zu sehen.

Open Calls: Piksel Fest & transmediale10


The guys of Pikselfest in Norway are now accepting proposals in the categories installation, a/v performance, presentations and workshops. As ever – ” Projects realised using Max/Msp/Jitter, Flash/Shockwave, Final Cut or any other proprietary software does NOT qualify, and should not be submitted!”


Next years transmediale also published the call for entries.

I couldn’t find something like a theme or a subject – the next step after getting rid of the categories a few years ago? Would make sense imho, artistic production usually doesn’t care too much about festival themes anyway..

transmediale09 “Deep North” rundown

i finally managed to finish the summary of this years transmediale – it’s a tough job to create a span of all the topics the transmediale is covering, but i think it’s gives a rough idea, but see yourself:

comments welcome!
