The UNPAINTED media art fair is a unique art fair and platform for digital art. It was first held in 2014 and attracted more than 60 international participants to the Bavarian capital. The audience met the digital art with a mixture of curiosity and uncertainty. But the broad educational program cleared up many questions and most of the participants went home with new ideas and sales results.
The founders of UNPAINTED are Dr. Annette Doms, Benedict Rodenstock and Irmin Rodenstock Beck. Background: Big Data, cloud, network neutrality, Facebook and Twitter: who would have expected that these technologies would once have such a large impact on our society? The mobile Internet as a future market. The fair displays the latest trends and signs of contemporary art.
“UNPAINTED, Munich’s first New Media Art fair, opened its doors on January 17th to play host to over 50 exhibitors from around the globe, showing work that covers the wide range of artists actively engaging with the internet as a creative medium. Acting equally as an exhibition space, buyer ground, and educational platform, Unpainted seeks to broaden Munich’s views on how technology has affected the very fabric of our world. Works ranging from the historical to the up-and-coming were on display, along with performances and lectures covering a range of topics related to art and technology” Spencer Longo wrote at the creatorsproject — Jan 24 2014
