The selection of works for the exhibition of the Marl Media Art Awards 2018 has been confirmed.
Out of the submissions, 7 sound and 14 video positions were selected by the juries for the exhibition of the Marl Media Art Awards 2018.

In 2018, the Marl Media Art Awards were readvertised with the theme "Space" - the Marl Video Art Award and the EUROPEAN SOUNDART AWARD. All national and international artists working with the media video or sound were allowed to participate in the competition.

The EUROPEAN SOUNDART AWARD is awarded by the Kulturradio WDR 3, the Stiftung Hören and the European Soundart Association in cooperation with the Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl for sound works characterized by artistic quality, space-relating and characterizing sound creations that display acoustic and sculptural form safety. 
The winner of the EUROPEAN SOUNDART AWARDS is invited to use the prize money (7,000 euros) to create a site-specific work for Marl, which will also be shown in the exhibition. The jury selected seven additional sound art works out of the submissions for the exhibition.

For the 18th time, the renowned Marl Video Art Award will be awarded. This competition is carried out by the Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl. The submitted works should refer to "space", either thematically, formally or in their presentation. Spatial reference also means the avoidance of linear narrative structures and other temporal, non-linear structures, such as a video loop, which seems ideally suited to the exhibition situation in the museum.
However, classical single-channel videos, which are shown or projected on a monitor, still remain conceivable. 14 works were selected for the exhibition and were competing for the Marl Video Art Award 2018, endowed with 5,000 euros in prize money. The prize money will be used to acquire the award-winning video for the permanent collection of the Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl.
