European Media Art Festival 1997

EMAF-European Media Art Festival, Osnabrück
For the 10th anniversary, almost 1000 entries were submitted to the organising team for the various sections of the festival. In addition to Great Britain and the USA, numerous contributions were sent from New Zealand, Japan, Romania and Brazil. In 1997, the film programme included a particularly large number of feature-length films, whereby the end product often no longer allowed any conclusions to be drawn from the source material. The artists had combined the creative possibilities of film, video and computer technology in such a way that the previous aesthetic and formal definitions of film and video art had to be discussed anew.EMAF’s retrospective was dedicated to the film and video avant-gardist Stan Vanderbeek, whose extraordinary montage technique had a major impact on Media Art.In addition, EMAF 1997 presented a Hong Kong special and a new project called "Virtual Exhibition", which was designed as a virtual, three-dimensional exhibition room.
