Monitoring provides a space for film and video-based installations and other time-based media works of recent years that require presentation formats beyond the classic cinema screen. This year (2015), the jury has selected sixteen works out of 266 international submissions: including works by artists from Germany, Russia, Switzerland, Turkey and the USA. The submissions followed an open call, without pre-set topics or restrictions concerning content or technical media. The works were chosen upon their ability to enfold in a spatial setting and the contemporary relevance of their topics. All works in the exhibition are nominated for the Golden Cube award for the best media installation, which is endowed with 3,500 €. The award is donated by the software company Micromata GmbH.
