Sketch plans presentation

From 8 through 23 May the Netherlands Media Art Institute is presenting the sketch plans for a new 'MediaArtMobile', a portable space in which media art can be shown and, for example, workshops can be given, with which the Institute can tour The Netherlands after late 2009.

For this rough design the NIMK entered into a collaboration with the Art and Public Space Foundation (SKOR), which has a lot of experience with commissions for artists and designers in relation to public space (

Subsequently a commission for the MediaArtMobile was extended to several artists and designers: Kevin van Braak, Michiel Kluiters, Maurer United and Peter Stel. In addition Tillmann Meyer-Faje, Andre Kodde and Lucia Luptakova, from the Sandberg Institute, and eight students from the Technical University at Eindhoven were also asked to prepare a design.

From among the sketches that are being shown in the Netherlands Media Art Institute in May, one design will be selected that the NIMK will continue to develop and use. After it has been realized the MediaArtMobile will go on the road from late 2009, visiting schools, festivals and other venues, with a diverse program of workshops, installations and video programs
