On August 13, 2018 research and media artist Monika Fleischmann and architect and artist Wolfgang Strauss will be awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award in Digital Art at SIGGRAPH 2018.

SIGGRAPH 2018 is a five-day immersion into the latest innovations in CG, Animation, VR, Games, Digital Art, Mixed Reality and Emerging Technologies. Experience research, hands-on demos, and fearless acts of collaboration in Vancouver. 

Fleischmann and Strauss have been realizing their artistic works since 1987 in partnership. The two are the first media artists in Germany to work in a research context in collaboration with computer scientists and to do pioneering work in the field of new media art.

Fleischmann contributed to digital media developing into a reflexive and analytical arena for critical social and cultural thinking in her work. Her artistic goal is to shed light on the contradictory characteristics of digital media.

To experience the two media artists, it is not necessary to travel to Canada: One month before, on July 13, 2018, they will be present at the opening of »Art in Motion« at ZKM. Their interactive work »Liquid Views« will be on display in the exhibition until February 10, 2019. 

Congratulations on the Lifetime Achievement Award in Digital Art and we are looking forward to the opening!
