What kind of art are we looking for?
Electrohype has since the start in 1999 focused on what we choose to
call computer based art. Art that runs of computers and utilizes the
capacity of the computer to mix various media, allow interaction with
the audience, or machines interacting with each others etc. in other
words art that can not be transferred to "traditional" linear media.
This might seem as a narrow approach but we have discovered that it
gives us a better focus on a genre that in no way is narrow.
We are not looking for "straight" video art (even if it is edited on
a computer) or still images rendered on computers and other material
that refers to more "traditional" media forms. Forms were the
traditional tools have been replaced with computers and software.
Curators for the biennial are Anna Kindvall and Lars Gustav Midbøe.

the financial planning. The quality of the artwork will always be the
Electrohype covers all expenses, within reasonable limits, and also
pays an artist honorarium to participating artists. Electrohype does
not support development and production of unfinished artworks.
In previous exhibitions we have managed to keep a high level both in
artistic content and exhibition design, even on a modest budget. It
is therefore very important for us to avoid unpleasant surprises, so
please keep this in mind when filling out the various posts in the
