A young generation of artists has grown up with the Internet and in a digital culture; they use these tools quite naturally in their work, as sources of inspiration and material, and as a venue for art. It is to the Internet as the site for art production and as a medium for distribution that the new prize, ‹net based›, is dedicated. Submissions have been reviewed by an international jury: Karen Archey, free curator and art critic, Berlin/New York, Ben Vickers, curator of digital, Serpentine Galleries, London, Raffael Dörig, director Kunsthaus Langenthal, Langenthal, Sabine Himmelsbach, director HeK, Basel, Roger Schoenberger, Symphasis, Zürich, Felix Stalder, cultural theorist, Switzerland. The winner will be selected by the jury from a shortlist of the 10 best works.
