We are looking for artistically challenging projects and artworks
INSPIRED BY PIONEERING experimental pieces of (new) media art history
in different European countries. Use of digital technologies is not
a crucial requirement. Submitted works do not have to be explicit
and literal REMAKEs of older pieces, but should present an innovative,
up-to-date approach to the particular historical artistic concepts /

„New media art is a genre that encompasses artworks created with new media
technologies, including digital art, computer graphics,
computer animation, virtual art, Internet art, interactive art
technologies, computer robotics, and art as biotechnology.“
New media art forms include Artistic computer game modification,
Ascii Art, Bio Art, Computer art, Digital art, Digital poetry,
Electronic art, Generative art, Hacktivism, Interactive art,
Internet art (Net.art), Performance art, Radio art, Robotic art,
Software art, Sound art, Systems art, Telematic art, Video art,
Virtual art, etc.

The REMAKE - REthinking Media Artworks in C(K)ollaborative Environments
project is building upon MONOSKOP, a collaborative research on media art
and culture in Europe, conducted in the recent years. Monoskop examines
the social context of historical developments in media arts in Europe
(with special focus on Central and Eastern Europe).
Its analysis of sociopoetic conditions of art and technology crossings
from 1960s to 2000s draws upon the undertakings in experimental
and avantgarde film, performance art, computer art, video art,
experimental music, sound art, and media theory.

Remake project will consist of the multimedia performances, discussions
and collaborative events and will also take place within the framework
of Multiplace festival 2011 in participating venues, galleries
and public spaces.

Multiplace is a decentralized network of people and organisations
interested in interaction between media, technologies, art, culture
and society. Network activities culminate every year into the festival,
that is happening parallely at several locations in the world.
Its program is open to workshops, installations, discussions,
concerts, performances, exhibitions, presentations, screenings
and especially new forms of creativity. Original focus on the
new media culture has been evolving since 2002 and besides
the technological aspect of digital media in art, the focus shifted
also to questions related to its aesthetical, social, cultural,
legal and political issues. The aim of the festival-network Multiplace
is to create the fertile ground for media art, to support
the creativity in an open and collaborative environment and
to encourage critical reflection on the life in the culture shaped
by technologies.
