Marler Media Art Awards 2018 


The competition is now complete! Exhibition opening and award ceremony on 14th October 2018

The selection of works for the Marl Media Art Awards 2018 exhibition has been confirmed.
From the submissions 7 sound and 14 video positions were selected by the juries for Marl Media Art Awards 2018 exhibition.

The Marler Media Art Awards were re-advertised in 2018 with the theme "Space" - the Marler Video Art Award and the EUROPEAN SOUNDART AWARD. All national and international artists working with the media video or sound could take part in the competition.

The EUROPEAN SOUNDART AWARD is awarded by the Kulturradio WDR 3, the Stiftung Hören and the European Soundart Association in cooperation with the Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl to sound works characterized by artistic quality, space-related and characterizing sound creations and acoustic and sculptural form safety. The winner of the EUROPEAN SOUNDART AWARDS is invited to use the prize money (7,000 euros) to create a site-specific work for Marl, which will also be shown in the exhibition. In addition, the jury selected seven sound art works from the submissions to the competition for the exhibition.

For the 18th time, the renowned Marler Video Art Award will be awarded. This competition is carried out by the Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl. The submitted works should refer to the space thematically, formally or in their presentation. Spatial reference also means the avoidance of linear narrative structures and another temporal, non-linear structure, such as a loop in the video, which seems ideally suited to the exhibition situation in the museum. However, classical single-channel videos, which are shown or projected on a monitor, still remain conceivable. 14 works were selected for the exhibition and compete for the Marler Video Art Award 2018, endowed with 5,000 euros in prize money. The prize money will be used to acquire the award-winning video for the permanent collection of the Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl.
