The Werkleitz-Centre for Media Art facilitates the production and presentation of new media
art projects encouraging social and artistic issues.
The Centre’s work consists of three major strands:
Werkleitz produces film and media art festivals and other events in various formats, including the Werkleitz Festival,
monthly art presentations and regular video-installations.
With the European Media Artists in Residence Exchange (EMARE), the Supported Artist programme, A38-Production
Grant, Werkleitz-Project Grant and Mexico scholarship in cooperation with the European Media Art Network or the
International Documentary Film and Video Festival Kassel and other public funding bodies it awards scholarships and
grants to individual artists active in the media arts field.
It provides resources as well as expert advice on artistic and technical aspects of film and video production, especially within
the Professional Media Master Class 2011 for documentary filmmaker talents.
Werkleitz also works in collaboration with other regional, national and international project partners to develop exhibitions
and conferences. Werkleitz co-founded the Initiative for Talents in Film and Television in Central Germany and the
Contemporary Art Initiative of Saxony-Anhalt. As well it initiated and coordinates the European Media Art Network.
Werkleitz is supported with funds of the Federal State of Saxony-Anhalt.
