KairUs wins Outstanding Artist Award

Andreas Zingerle, media artist and also managing director of our project partner "mur.at", and his colleague Linda Kronman recently received the Austrian Outstanding Artist Award 2022. Together, Andreas and Linda form the collective KairUs.

Jury statement (extract): "Their joint work deals in an intelligent and aesthetically highly elaborate way with the current issues of data security, data ethics, activism, hacker culture and the recycling of electronic resources. They transform these very complex topics in a sophisticated way into media installations and media presentations in order to bring visitors closer to these highly virulent issues."

Our warmest congratulations!
