\\\Aktuell [September 2004]
As the selection of the \\international\media\art\award 2004 winners has concluded now, the awarding of the prizes has been scheduled for the 29th of October, this year‘s location being the E-Werk in Baden-Baden. In October the »50 Best« will be broadcast on SUEDWEST TV and Swiss TV, as well as on ARTE, 3 sat and EINS Festival. In addition, another upcoming program is being prepared, involving the »nano« science magazine and SWR 2 Radio [www.medienkunstpreis.de/sendungen].
A symposium curated by Barbara Könches und Peter Weibel named »inVISIble. Algorithms as interface of science and art« will occur on the reopening of the ZKM_Media Museum, between October 30th and 31st, in the ZKM_Media Theatre; its aim is to approach the paradigm of algorithms as interfaces between art and science and their perception today. Furthermore, the manner in which the algorithmic revolution changes the picture of science and art is also put into question. Renowned specialists such as Philip Sarasin [historian, University Zürich], Carlo Ulises Moulines [philosopher and logician, Munich], Horst Bredekamp [art historian, Humboldt University of Berlin], Heinz-Otto Peitgen [mathematician, Bremen] and Olaf Breidbach [biologist and philosopher, University Jena] will hold lectures on these themes.
The sponsor of the \\international\media\art\award is the Landesbank Baden-Wuerttemberg.
