The short-film competition 20 Seconds for Art was initiated by INFOSCREEN and KÖR GmbH and took place for the first time in 2013. Artists were invited to address the theme of “art in public space in Vienna”, which was to be visualized in soundless 20-second short films. The competition was aimed at sensitizing the public to the theme and making art in public space accessible to a broad public by an extensive presentation of the winning films. The invitation for submissions was addressed to artists, students or graduates of artistic and graphic arts or film as well as at people aged over 18 at home and abroad who were involved in the arts. In order to clarify the theme of the competition the participants were posed three questions: what is art in public space? What does art in public space trigger? What is the significance of art in Vienna’s public space?
Six winning films were ultimately chosen from some 150 competition entries.
