The jury for the transmediale Award 2011 have nominated seven outstanding art works from among an impressive pool of over 1000 entries submitted from around the world, covering a broad range of digital and media arts practice. Congratulations to the nominees - and good luck to the transmediale Award 2011 winner who will be announced in Berlin at the Awards Ceremony 5 February 2011!
Nominated for the Open Web Award are three projects that critically consider and make use of the potential of the Open Web. They have an online component, implement open and free technology and facilitate participation and collaboration. Drumbeat Project Producer Henrik Moltke represented award partner Mozilla at the jury session.
From 15 October 2010 the nominated works will be made available on the Mozilla Drumbeat Platform for a public vote that will determine the winner of this award.
With RESPONSE:ABILITY, transmediale.11 puts forward a call for action in terms how we live on and with the Internet today. Having become a central stage for the unfolding of our public and private lives, we must ask not only how this experience of online-liveness affects and transforms our bodies and subjectivities but also, importantly, what responsibilities and possibilities this engenders for participating in the continuous process of its evolution. Especially now, with economic and political mega-infrastructures striving for control and regimentation, threatening to make a smooth space into a striated one.
