How to set up media art centres on your own or how Werkleitz became a "global village" Vortrag und Gespräch (in engl. Sprache).

Peter Zorn, founding member and chairman of the board, will introduce into the Werkleitz history and give an impression on the different strategies needed to set up an internationally known media art organisation from grass-root.

The Werkleitz Gesellschaft is a non-profit association running the centre media art Saxony-Anhalt. Besides co-ordinating and consulting independent artists' projects in the fields of visual arts, video, film, Internet and Multimedia, the Werkleitz Gesellschaft's centre also works as a media lab hiring out equipment, organising workshops and running artist residencies like the European media artists-in-residence-exchange programme (EMARE) or the Werkleitz Award. Other important work sections include the Internet Database for Experimental Film and Video Art http://www.cinovid.org and the Werkleitz Biennale: an outstanding hybrid between film festival and art biennale which the media like to call: "Documenta of the East".
