Project description online

Do we affect our environment and our life ourselves? Do we shape and alter the things that surround us, or does our environment shape us and how we see the world? How much do we influence our surroundings and when will the digital world take over that purpose?
The graduates of the Media Art and Design program address these questions through the installations, photography, videos, objects and performance in contention for to this year's Media Art Award.

Since 2009, the Media Art and Design program places the Media Art Award along with the Video Advancement Award of the Bauhaus Film Institute. Traditionally eight outstanding thesis projects and four student film projects still in development are nominated and shown in a curated exhibition.

An independent expert panel of judges reviews the nominated works. The winners of the €4500 prize, which is kindly underwritten by Merkur Bank, will be announced at the ceremony.

Nominated are G. Dilek Acay, Claire Dorweiler, Florian Froger, Jorgelina Garcia, Stefanie Heim, Martin Melcher, Melisa Palacio und Marie-Christin Stephan, Jaykrishnan Subramanian.
