Mission Statement

The prize is being awarded by the Digital Art Museum [DAM] which was founded in 1998 by its present manager Wolf Lieser, going online as a virtual museum in 2000 (www.dam.org). The first gallery was opened in 2003 in the centre of Berlin and the name [DAM]Berlin today enjoys an international reputation. In the meantime, the online Museum has become one of the leading and influential sources of digital art to be used worldwide. In addition to its main sectors of activities involving classical exhibitions in the premises in Berlin and the dissemination and archiving of information, the objective of its museum activities is to ensure that fifty years of international digital art and its claim to great experimental and innovative spirit are afforded due regard and recognition.
