Newsletter 02-2011


The exhibition Planet M at the Media Art Festival in Osnabrück will present contemporary positions of internationally recognised artists and young talent between 27 April and 29 May 2011.
Moving Stories, the main part of the exhibition, was compiled in international cooperation between the EMAF and five other European art institutions. Multimedia installations from countries such as Belgium, Italy and Austria will be shown. All of the works of art address the subject of the innovation of narration.
The artists explore new forms of narration related to the topic of moving images, each in their own very personal artistic way.
The EMAF succeeded in encouraging the internationally renowned artist Candice Breitz to create a new piece for Moving Stories. Other participating artists include: Nicolas Provost (B), Masbedo (I), Rainer Gamsjäger (A), Mihai Grecu (F) and Pawel Janicki (PL).

Transit – European Young Talents Forum, the second part of the exhibition, will show 15 works by students from various European art academies. In collaboration with the festival Vidéoformes in Clermont-Ferrand and the art centre FLACC workspace in Genk, the project promotes young artists from six European countries.

The latest contributions to the focal point of the festival Japanese Media Art Now will also be shown at the exhibition, complementing the programme to mark the 150-year friendship between Japan and Germany, also to be reflected in the film programmes.
