Mission & Vision

This new yearly festival establishes IMA with its home-base in Hainburg as a national as well as international platform, creating a network of media/sound artists. The yearly IMAutomaat festival will give IMA the opportunity to introduce her ideas to a larger audience and build on the network of IMA-members, who will be actively involved along with specially invited guests.

The concept is to invite six artists close to the IMA-pool and link them with a group of international artists for a one weeks period. Intention is to create a platform of like-minded creators in the new-media field coming from a sonic/audioart background. IMA wants to offer a labor situation where specialists/professionals will exchange, interact, communicate, experiment, network and play together and around certain topics. This year’s focus will be “sensors & new musical interfaces”. New formations will be encouraged, new work can evolve and can at a latter stage emanate as a performance or lecture in the framework of the festival to come.
