CYNETART 2009 – 13th International Festival for Computer based

Trans-Media-Akademie Hellerau

26 November until 06 December 2009 at the Festival Theatre Hellerau

The 13th international festival for computer based art CYNETART is going to provide a collective atmospheric picture for the reflection on digital culture from 26 November until 06 December 2009 at the festival theatre Hellerau. This will be done by a variety of event formats, such as Automatic Clubbing, a presentation of the output of the European Tele-Plateaus project and the first VIPA-Congress.

Video- and performance-installations by Humatic, intoLight, Vera-Maria Glahn and Marcus Wendt et al. as well as a meditative computer game by Jannis Urle Kilian Kreft will be shown within Automatic Clubbing from 26 until 28 November. This will be embedded in electronic music by Monolake, eLBee BAD & friends, Jacob Korn or Paul St. Hilaire with Scion. Automatic Clubbing is a platform for dynamic media art in the style of traditional club events, inviting the audience to experience and experiment the interactive, audio-visual environments.

Another thematic focus of the festival will be the testing and exploration of new telematic media applications resulting from a continuing mediatisation. This subject is the context of the European co-operation project European Tele-Plateaus – Trans-national Sites of Encounter and Co-Production. This project was started by Trans-Media-Akademie Hellerau together with partners from Norrköping, Madrid and Prague in 2008. It aims at creating virtual sound-image-spaces for the public to walk-in and inter-act in a sensate-bodily condition. This will be across long distances and within networked virtual environments in real-time. CYNETART 2009 will show the recent output of this project within “ETP_body-spaces09 – Exploration of Nearness & Distance” an experimental performance from 03 until 06 December. This performance will involve four dancers, interacting simultaneously in the partner cities, connected via internet and networked in a virtual sound-image space.

The first VIPA-Congress on the internet platform addresses the current negotiations and talks about future potentials of a web-based democracy. The platform will serve as panel for political discussions and opinion-polling in support of a political culture of the 21st century. It will furthermore provide political information and help generate decisions, exploring the scope of an open parliamentarian process. The first VIPA-Congress will take place within the CYNETART festival from 04 until 06 December. It will offer opportunities for a direct exchange of experiences and perspectives of net-based participation as well as chances and limits of a trans-local web-based democracy.

CYNETART has won in the nationwide contest „365 Landmarks in the Land of Ideas“– which is organised by the initiative „Germany – Land of Ideas“ in co-operation with Deutsche Bank. It has been awarded the official title „Selected Landmark in the Land of Ideas“.
