Nemo, Biennial of Digital Arts reveals its 12 S+T+ARTS award-winning projects, as part of its next edition artistic programme

1025 applications from over 50 countries

The international call for projects launched by LE CENTQUATRE-PARIS for the next edition of Nemo, Digital Arts Biennial of the Île-de-France Region, was centred on the theme BEYOND REALITY? Revealing the invisible through art, science and technology », and released in two sessions (April and October 2020).

This call for projects, which has brought together 1025 applications from over 50 different countries, was supported by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme as part of S2S (STARTS Towards Sustainability) project in the framework of S+T+ARTS (Science, Technology & the Arts) initiative.

After several selection phases by a dedicated jury composed of various programmers from digital arts festivals in Europe, 12 projects involving a strong « art and science » dimension, have been selected as S2S award winning works for the next Nemo Biennial (from October 9 2021 to January 9, 2022).

Among them:

  • 5 projects are led by French artists, and 7 by artists based elsewhere in the world (UE and non-UE).
  • 7 are installations that will be showcased in the next Nemo Biennial’s main exhibition at LE CENTQUATRE-PARIS (from October 9 2021 to January 2, 2022), and 5 are shows dealing and dialoguing with technologies, which will be performed in December 2021, in some of Nemo’s partners venues based in Paris and the Île-de-France Region.
