With a considerable amount of irony Ho Tzu-Nyen, one of the most renowned Singapurian filmmakers, borrows the image of Newton's apple as a metaphor for the futile challenge artists face in terms of achieving a creative inspiration (or rather, one after another) of their own accord.
The transmediale Award is cancelled for 2012. On this page you can see our previous nominees and winners.

For the 2012 festival there will be no general transmediale Award and also no Open Web Award. Instead, we are opting for tight curatorial coherence in the programming as well as more community engagement outside of the festival. Related to these changes we are transforming the Vilém Flusser Theory Award into a Residency Programme for artistic research.
The programme will support art and science projects in the spirit of Flusser.
