What is the relevance of media art today? Are media artists, as author Bruno Preisendörfer says, people that do not matter, at least not as individuals? That they, like all of us, are only important in the aggregate (as consumers, as an audience, as voters), because, as individuals, they lack money, power and knowledge?
“CPU”, a temporary working space for fifteen people from a variety of fields of art and technology, challenges this mindset: Six months ahead of the festival, the development of new media art works has already begun, that will be showcased in Graz in October – as installations, workshops, performances and lectures.
