The Research Institute for Arts & Technology (RIAT) is pleased to invite you to the inaugural Awards for Research in Artistic Technology at the Vienna Gartenbaukino on Thursday December 10 at 9:45pm. The awards honor those who have extended the field of artistic technology through pioneering and original approaches within art and research. The 2015 winners are Oswald Wiener, Mario de Vega and Nicolas Maigret. They will be awarded a sculpture by Austrian artist Niki Passath.
Axel Stockburger will host the evening and moderate a discussion between Matthias Tarasiewicz, Sophie-Carolin Wagner and the laureate Oswald Wiener. Following the discussion, Nicolas Maigret will show his live torrent collage Pirate Cinema and Mario de Vega will present an immersive sound performance.
Both Mexican artist Mario de Vega and French artist Nicolas Maigret are currently Artists-in-Residence within the newly developed RIAT Residency program, implemented in cooperation with the Q21 / MuseumsQuartier Wien.
The event also features the launch of the first edition of the open-access Journal for Research Cultures. The journal explores experimental research strategies within artistic and scientific work.
