Since 2010, NIMk extends its existing distribution services with a selection of computer-based and net-based works. NIMk launches this extension to its collection, in collaboration with V2_ (Rotterdam), at the Transmediale.11 festival in Berlin (February 1-6, 2011).

The Netherlands Media Art Institute and V2_Institute for the Unstable Media (V2_, Rotterdam) join forces to introduce their dissemination and distribution services for media art. Both NIMK and V2_ are known for their long-term experience in presentation, research and development of media art, and have been engaged for nearly 30 years in actively supporting media artists.

This year, V2_ launched a new agency for the distribution of media artworks, which expands the institution’s role of a platform for the research, production, presentation and archiving of media art.
NIMk builds forth on its existing distribution collection of video works and media installations. It now extends its distribution services with a broader selection of computer-based works.

Launch during Transmediale.11

To celebrate the launch of both distribution initiatives, NIMk and V2_ curated a small showcase exhibition of artworks from their catalogue for Transmediale.11 in Berlin (February 1-6, 2011). We also organize a reception on Friday, February 4, 4PM-5PM at the Cafe Global Stage, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin.

With this program, we present these works to the Dutch and international audience of the Transmediale festival, to media art professionals, curators and programmers.
