Every two years the Trans-Media-Akademie Hellerau and their partners host the CYNETART Competition and with the historically and currently important Festspielhaus Hellerau it offers an extraordinary venue for public presentations and the performance of inter- and transdisciplinary media art investigations.
Since the foundation in 1997 CYNETART has accomplished a lively mix of creative programmers, skilful engineers and innovative sound technicians and media artists from all over the world. With their original ideas they come together in November every year. The event presents current trends in the artistic contention about and application of computer and network technologies.
CYNETART 2014 is scheduled for 13th-19th November 2014 on several locations in Dresden, Germany.
