Once again an international jury has met in Berlin at the end of September to issue the list of Award Nominees for 2010.
The deliberations of the international jury - composed of Annick Bureaud (Paris), Bronac Ferran (London), Juha Huuskonen (Helsinki), Pooja Sood (New Delhi), and Christoph Tannert (Berlin) - ended with a selection of eight works being nominated for the transmediale Award 2009:
Graham Harwood, Richard Wright and Matsuko Yokokoji from Great Britain received the first prize (endowed with 5,000 euros). Their installation Tantalum Memorial is a memorial to the people who have died in the wars in Congo over the metal coltan, which is used in cell phone components and has become more valuable than gold. The work also references to a 'social telephony' network used by the Congelese diaspora.
The two second prizes (1,500 euros each) go to the Berlin based US-American artist Reynold Reynolds for his split-screen video installation which shows the life of six people in their apartments, isolated and unaware of each other (Six Apartments) and to Rudolfo Quintas from Portugal for his interactive sound performance Burning The Sound about the nature of rituals, power and control.
