Call for Entries: VKUNST Frankfurt “mon amie, l’image”



We live in pictures, we build relationships to them, as friends or enemies they are part of our lives. In visual art, reality and fiction become pictorial. How does video art approach our time’s relationship with the image?

Friday, May 9 and Saturday, May 10, 2014, vkunst frankfurt will once again present current media art trends and tendencies. You are invited to submit your work for the sixth media art exhibition vkunst frankfurt – ‘mon amie, l’image’.

The exhibition is located right next to the Frankfurt Museum of Modern Art in the city center. On the second day (Saturday) the exhibition runs alongside the Frankfurt Night of the Museums.

vkunst frankfurt provides a constant platform for national and international media artists. In recent years, established artists, e.g. Carsten Nicolai, Christoph Girardet, Tobias Rehberger or Anna Hepp, as well as many young talents have been part of vkunst.

As in 2013, the media art prize ‘vkunst’, donated by Jochen Latz and endowed with €2,500 will be awarded by an independent qualified jury.
