medienkunst e.V. - Verein für zeitgenössische Kunst mit neuen Medien provides a platform for artists, curators, and scholars as well as institutions and initiatives to develop and promote new forms of presentation for contemporary art with new media. The mkv fills a present gap between commercial collections and cinematic institutions with a platform for video and media art that is lively and discursive, relevant and sustainable. As a non-profit association, the mkv promotes experimental exhibitions and communication channels and seeks new forms of expression and realms of experience for video and media art to enable thought outside classical film screenings. That way the mkv initiates media-relevant discourse and creates space for artistic research and knowledge transfer.
