CYNETART is an international festival for computer-aided art in Dresden.
The festival has been the focal point of the research at
Trans-Media-Akademie (TMA) Hellerau for 14 years now. This work has made
the festival become a countrywide and internationally recognised
platform of digital culture – providing an in-depth overview of current
developments of technology-based art.

Since the foundation in 1997 CYNETART has accomplished a lively mix of
creative programmers, skilful engineers and innovative sound technicians
and media artists from all over the world. With their original ideas
they come together in November every year. The event presents current
trends in the artistic contention about and application of computer and
network technologies.

Every two years the festival is accompanied by the international
CYNETART competition. With a total prize money of 28.400 Euro it ranks
among Europe’s top awards in the area of media art. An international
expert jury chooses the winners of the CYNETART-award from more than 300
submissions and 30 countries. It also awards a sponsorship prize and an
artist-in-residence-scholarship funded by the Saxon State Ministry of
Science and Art.

CYNETART is a dynamic and energy-driven festival which thrives on the
variety of its international artists and visitors. It features the
captivating architecture of the exceptional and authentic venue, namely
the festival theatre Hellerau and a program rich in contrast. The latter
includes performances, exhibitions, lectures and workshops as well as
electronic live-concerts – altogether an exciting panorama.

The upcoming 14th international festival for computer-aided art will
open on 11th November 2010 with the awards ceremony for the CYNETART
competition 2010. On seven event days the 14th edition of the event is
going to present an exhibition with the prize-winning works and selected
competition entries, first-class performances and an evening program
including live sets with international electronic musicians and VJs.
