The transmediale.09 video selection consists of eight outstanding video works that were presented in the 2009 edition of the Berlin based festival for art and digital culture. For the video selection programme of transmediale.09, we deliberately chose works that differ strongly in the way they were produced. Consequently, these videos give a wide-ranging insight into current artistic video production in form and content.
The transmediale Award is dedicated to current positions in digital arts and media. It is an open competition, into which artists are invited to enter their current work.
905 artistic works from 53 countries responding to transmediale’s DEEP NORTH call were submitted for the festival’s award competition. The international jury selected eight works to be nominated for the transmediale Award 2009.
