Transmediale Award 2011
The jury selected seven submissions in their search for innovative, original and visionary art works and projects that address, question and artistically contribute to the technological society. These nominated works reflect upon the contemporary relation to, and understanding of the human, in a dynamic, complex and mediated environment, where collaborative practice increasingly becomes a central model.
