 From May 16 until May 30 the Congress "CODED CULTURES" will take place 
in the "Freiraum" of MuseumsQuartier Vienna in Austria. For two weeks 
the ways of origination and reality design of various artists and art 
groups shall be demonstrated on hand of workshops and an exhibition, 
whereas a new approach towards digital art in the 21.century will be 
acquired beyond its technical background.

5uper.net asks for submissions of artists and theoreticians which work 
in the field of electronic, digital- as well as computer based arts. Due 
to low budget we are only able to offer the artist and speakers 
accomodation - sponsoring of any kind is very welcome.

Submissions and proposals for possible cooperations for the 3 below 
mentioned fields should be sent via email to k.lackner at 5uper.net or to 
our postal adress

Quartier21/ Electric Avenue
Museumsplatz 1

Young medial art, media- art and conceptional art from eastern and 
western Europe of the last 20 years will be shown in the "Freiraum" in 
MuseumsQuartier Vienna, supported by the well known slovenian curator 
Dunja Kukovec.

accepted works are
* interactive works
* installation
* web art
* Video
or any other kind of related digital works.

Artistic work selected for inclusion in the exhibition will be presented 
to an international audience of peers, critics, producers, academics, 
local industry partners and the broader public.

Parallel to the exhibition there will be a complementary, theoretical as 
well as interactive line-up. It should help to decode and reflect upon 
the ways of origination and the perception of various artists and art 
groups, who either are or have been active in the aforementioned fields.

Speeches, artists or artist-group presentations, presentations of 
organizations or demonstrations of digital work will be accepted.

Several workshops will take place during Coded Cultures. These will 
picture the tools and methods of digital art and progressvive projects.

Workshops in the field of digital art and tools for the production of 
digital content, as well as the topic of distributing art will be accepted.

Artistic work is coded on behalf of different cultural backgrounds, 
cultural connotations and (visual) symbolism. These codes will be 
pointed out and compared. The aim is to make the "art of the new media" 
apprehend- and experiencable. Apart from the technical approach, 
narrative elements, interaction and transparency are of importace to the 
viewer. The term of "digital art" will be discussed- the ways of 
creation, perception, aesthetics and norms will be reflected upon and 
decoded. Artists and the interested audience shall be brought together 
in the open forum Coded Cutures: the contemporary situation of digital 
forms of expression is to be illustrated, new ways and possibilities in 
these disciplines to be found and the discussion about digital art shall 
be stimulated.
